WE NEED YOUR HELP TO BRING back Nerdy Derby for maker faire orlando 2016!

We are looking for a volunteer or volunteer group to build a new track for our 2016 event. There is a simple track design – with plans! – but we need someone to take on the project to make it happen. Can you help? Email us at makers@makerfaireorlando.com!

Nerdy Derby is a miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts’ Pinewood Derby. You can bring a car to race, or build one onsite using recycled materials!

OSC-track_500px_wideWe need your recycled supplies for the Recycler class Nerdy Derby race. Bring any of the following supplies for your car, or to help stock the Nerdy Derby construction area!

  • Anything vaguely wheel shaped (spools, washers, small lids, actual wheels from old toys, pingpong balls, slices of wooden dowels, etc.)
  • Car bodies: pieces of wood, stiff cardboard, pvc and/or cardboard tubes, anything 12″ or less
  • Decorations: pipe cleaners, construction paper, foam core, markers, googly eyes, stickers. anything to make the cars more interesting to look at.
