The Great Science Derby of 2014

Lego car racing

We had a great time building and racing our LEGO creations! We had a very enthusiastic winner, a close second, and prizes were also awarded to some determinedly creative competitors! The derby can be officially declared a success.

But we had even more fun building and testing our vehicles. On top of that, we learned that we had to increase the weight of the cars to give them enough momentum to make it down the ramp. Plus, we found out that aerodynamic designs and a low center of gravity helped, too!

Since we had so much playing with our huge LEGO collection, we can’t wait for our monthly LEGO Group to start up again in September. We’ll keep you posted about all our LEGO events! IMG_2730
