Fly Your Ride! Competition
We're looking for students who want to build a vehicle no larger than a shoebox, slide it down a ramp, and see if it can jump a gap. It's fun, it's creative, and you don't have to be a science fair genius to come up with a winning entry! We'll give you feedback, create opportunities to talk to experts, and give away great prizes!
