Ride on – Power Racing Series: A Maker Minute Feature

What’s a little friendly competition among Makers? Some crazy hacking fun!

With a limit of $500 spent on modifying a kid’s Power Wheels car – hacker spaces race for the championship in the 2012 Power Racing Series.

The innovative racing series makes engineering entertaining and approachable. The goal of the Power Racing Series is to advance technology education and encourage people to try something new. (And have a good time, too.)

The first of this year’s series was in Kansas City – and next is right here in at Maker Faire Detroit at The Henry Ford. Who will take home the cup?

Check out some more cool video from last year’s Maker Faire Detroit race, highlights from last month’s Kansas City contest and a clip about Power Racing Series and education.
