About Nerdy Derby
Nerdy Derby is a miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts’ Pinewood Derby. You can bring a car to race, or build one onsite using recycled materials! Nerdy Derby Inc. provides students, educators, and event planners with hands-on learning activities. We design creative challenges around STEAM principles packaged in a festive environment where self-motivated iterative learning happens. Nerdy Derby has been implemented in schools as an annual week-long curriculum, a staple of many STEAM-based annual fairs, and adopted by a growing number of international "makerspaces" through open-sourced digital plans.
