Nerdy Derby Denver is a non-regulation miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts’ Pinewood Derby and the first ever Nerdy Derby in NYC. With a larger, more undulating track and no restrictions on the size of the cars (as long as they fit on the track) or materials participants can use (as long as they are safe), the Nerdy Derby rewards creativity, cleverness and ingenuity.
The inaugural Nerdy Derby Denver will take place at the Emmanuel Gallery on Tuesday April 30on the Auraria Campus as part of Performance Art Week. Visitors can bring their own cars to race and stick around to watch.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
