North Carolina Gravity Games
ABOUT THIS EVENT
The North Carolina Gravity Games returns to Downtown Lenoir as teams compete to see who can build the fastest downhill racecar! Build and race your own car or come to cheer on teams from across the state. And be sure to check out Science Street, where you can explore science with hands-on activities and amazing demonstrations.
School-age teams can choose to build a car from race-approved kits, or dive right into the big leagues by designing and building their car from scratch! This hands-on project will allow everyone involved to learn about engineering. And if you're up for a steeper challenge, this year's engineering challenge is "Functional Minimalism" to design and construct a vehicle that minimizes weight while still ensuring safety and structural integrity.
Check out the NC Gravity Games website at ncgravitygames.com for complete details and rules. Registration to compete closes on April 13.
