Hack the iconic Radio Flyer red wagon in a race of wit and moxie!
HACK THE FLYER!
Do you have the creative wit and competitive grit to hack an iconic Radio Flyer red wagon to become a force to be reckoned with on the race track?
Grab your tools, duct tape (or welder!) and a team of your favourite designers, tinkerers, inventors, and speedaholics to hack your dream race-wagon. Win a coveted place in the Beakerhead Competition Hall of Fame!
And here's the rub: your wagon has to be sustainably-powered. No combustion-powered engines allowed. Pilots/drivers may not use their feet either. Other than that - almost anything goes!
Each team will compete in Speed and Challenge events.
