FLEx Week: Bike Works

This year during LWGMS's second of three FLEx Weeks (for more information, see our Curriculum Guide, p. 42.), our girls spent each morning working on Design Thinking projects focused on alternative transportation. As a part of this project, we wanted to get the girls out of school and into our community, giving back and getting some real world experience at the same time. Our friends at Bike Works offered to have the girls come by to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of being a biker in the Seattle area, and to let us offer a helping hand repairing some of the donated bikes.The girls had the opportunity to learn the skills and techniques for fixing a flat tire, and helped the staff repair over 20 flats. We had a wonderful time with the Bike Works crew and we hope to visit them again soon.
