Dragster Racing

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! 

Join us for a fun and informative look at racing and car design. Get involved in daily hands-on activities as you design, test, and build your own race car. Learn basic design and simple engineering concepts as well as theories of physics, including friction, acceleration, and aerodynamics of a compressed gas cartridge car. Make your dream car a reality and prepare it for testing!

Your family is invited to watch the big race on the last day… faster than any Pinewood Derby you’ve ever seen…hang on to the edge of your seats as we test to see which car design reigns supreme!
