Last summer, SLO MakerSpace decided to host a NOVA ‘Making Stuff’ workshop for our local community. One of the workshop activities is a Pinewood Derby.
The good news is those are always great fun. The bad news is we only had a week to prepare! SLOMS resident woodworking expert Rich Farwell accepted the challenge of building the track while I (Tom Cantrell) put together an Arduino-based race timer.
