Nerdy Derby

The Nerdy Derby is a no-rules miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts' Pinewood Derby. With a larger, more undulating track and no restrictions on the size of the cars or materials participants can use, the Nerdy Derby rewards creativity, cleverness and ingenuity.

Nerdy Derby premiered at World Maker Faire New York in 2012 and was a collaboration with Tak Cheung and other ITP students.
