Nerdy Derby

This week at school we did something called a Nerdy Derby. The Nerdy Derby was when people from curious on Hudson came to let us construct our own cars and race them. My car won all races. We built the cars using a small wooden rectangle base, then hot gluing two metal poles(axels) with wheels on them to the base. That was just the start of our cars. We mostly added materials to our cars, I added a big round ball to the middle-back of my car and taped it down, this also let my car flip a 360 degree at a bump at the end and still continue on. This was a very fun project that let us learn more about friction, speed and weight.
