June 20, 2020, 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM @ Rivian
Gather your friends and family for the 4th Annual CDM Pushcart Derby on Saturday, June 20, 2020 at Rivian Automotive! The Children’s Discovery Museum will once again partner with Illinois State University’s Center for Mathematics, Science, and Technology for this annual fundraiser powered by STEAM.
Teams of youth (3rd – 8th grade) will begin the day with a workshop led by ISU and Museum educators. Implementing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math within the design process, teams will use this time to construct their unique carts and prepare for the challenge ahead. Teams consist of 7-10 youth.
Afterwards, teams test their designs and race to the finish in the road course derby. Prizes will be awarded for Team Work, STEAM Award, and Speed.
Construction supplies are provided.
