Take part in our new Global Competition
In partnership with Women’s Engineering Society, we’re excited to announce a worldwide Soapbox Race Car Design Competition!
The winning design will be made into a real toy with the winners credited on the packaging.
ℹ️ A Soap Box Derby race car is a race car that works on gravity alone rolling down a hill. It does not use an engine and relies on gravity and its wheels to bring it down the hill. Good steering and brakes are considered essential!
The marking for the competition will be as follows;
- Original Design 80%
- Working wheels 10%
- Working steering 5%
- Brakes 5% (For the brakes a design concept will be sufficient).
