Urban Playspace

Workshop will give participants hands-on experience in building a hobby-grade radio control (r/c) model car. In addition to the build- we will also educate participants on how r/c cars operate- the science between car setups so that the run well (similar to set-ups for formula 1 cars). Following the build- we aim to give participants the chance to practice on the proposed beginners’ race track- and finally conduct a simple race for the participants. Participants will finally get to go home with the r/c car that they have built and race. Apart from the workshop/race at the Maker Faire- we would like to propose that participants get to participate in follow-up races that we can jointly organise at the Science Centre. This gives added value to the whole activity and also ensures that participants’ interest in this hands-on hobby is sustained.
