Scrap Box staff attended both days of the Maker Faire Detroit this past weekend.
There we assisted our friends at Ann Arbor Maker Space who were hosting a “Nerdy Derby” event for all ages.
We brought cubic feet of materials to decorate the Nerdy Derby entries and the MakerSpace people provided the logistics, track and technical nuts and bolts to put together a LOT of racing cars!
All together by the end, there were over 800 cars assembled and customized with anything from feathers, fabric, foam glass beads, markers and jewels. The inventiveness exhibited by the participants, young and old and variety of cars was endless!
The weather held out until almost the end when torrential downpours flooded the tent from below and washed away the glitter & track!
