Racers, start your engines! Imagination Station is taking over Main Library on Saturday, July 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Put your engineering skills and strategy to work at the Nerdy Derby. Whether you’re a speedster or go slow and steady, have fun designing, building, and racing derby cars down a 40-foot racetrack. Tinker with your automobile to get the perfect combination of aerodynamics and weight to overcome the forces of gravity and friction to be named the fastest – or slowest – racer of the day.
Competitors should bring their imagination, motivation, and determination – all other supplies are provided. Creativity is encouraged and the only rule: there are no rules!
There will be additional activities for the whole family. What’s a derby without the proper headgear? Visitors can create a lucky derby hat to wear during the race. The fancier the better! For the littlest racers – stop by Little Engineers Raceway and go on your own off-roading adventure with matchbox cars and Rigamajigs.
