Nerdy Derby

Friday - Sunday, June 21 - 23

On your mark, get set ... derby!

Feel the need for speed? Or are you a “slow and steady wins the race?” Either strategy can make you a winner at Imagination Station's three-day derby racing event!

Bring your best engineering skills and automotive prowess to create a car and race it down an impressive 40-foot track. Winners will have the honor of being the slowest or fastest of the bunch. Oh, and don’t worry about the supplies – we’ll provide them! The only rule: there are no rules!

In the Tinkering Space Nerdy Derby

It's not a proper derby without the proper headgear! Design and decorate your own derby hat using any of the materials in our Tinkering Space. The fancier the better!
