Nerdy Derby : A no-rules miniature car building and racing competition.
The Nerdy Derby is a no-rules* miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts’ Pinewood Derby. With a larger, more undulating track and no restrictions on the size of the cars or materials participants can use, the Nerdy Derby rewards creativity, cleverness and ingenuity.
Nerdy Derby began as a NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program student project for the 2012 World Maker Faire, held at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. The idea quickly took off — hackerspaces and tech collectives around the world started hosting the Nerdy Derby at various events and festivals. In 2013 we officially returned to the World Maker Faire New York through the generous sponorship of Kix Cereal.
