Join us for a Mini Nerdy Derby!

Mini Nerdy Derby

Our friends at American Science & Surplus will be hosting a Mini Nerdy Derby on Saturday, August 20, 2016 from 11am to 3pm, and we’ll be there to help!

What is a Nerdy Derby? It’s like the Pinewood Derby, except instead of showing up with your car already built, we provide all the tools and materials to build a car, decorate it, and race it down the track. (There is a $2 fee per car to cover the cost of materials.)

All participants are winners in our eyes and get to keep their cars, but the fastest running car will receive a $25 gift certificate from American Science & Surplus. Second and third place will each receive a $10 gift certificate from American Science & Surplus.

American Science & Surplus is located at 6901 W Oklahoma Ave, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53219. There’s no registration needed, just show up and have a good time!

Check out the Facebook event, maybe some of your friends will be there! And if you can’t make it, then make plans to attend Maker Faire Milwaukee, where we’ll be running the LARGE Nerdy Derby track. Same cars, same fun, bigger track!

Big thanks to our friends at Milwaukee Makerspace for co-hosting this Mini Nerdy Derby event, and to Coex 3D Printing Filaments for the 3D printed derby car wheels.
