Moving through a series of Milestones, players explore sports research and design thinking, conduct hands-on activities that apply the concepts introduced on-line, and ultimately create deliverables to upload and enter in the Parkour Shoe Design Challenge with prizes from Nike.- Parkour training will take place in the “Parkour Zone” at BKB Somerville and group work will be hosted nearby at Canopy City.
