The Power Racing Series is an event where Makers across the US have a budget of roughly $500 and each team builds a "Power Wheels Go-Kart". It got started as an event during Maker Faires but, it has evolved into a much bigger sport. Now 24+ teams compete in endurance and timed races. Teams also compete for awards such as: crowd favorite or best theme.
Our last visit with the young makers from Prime Time Center (PTC) lefts the Makerspace with projects in hand, ready to be assembled for another day. When these makers visited the Rutgers Makerspace, the day was full with events that the star attraction of building the pencil boxes was not able to be completed.
This past April our good friends from Prime Time Center (PTC) bought the young adults in their day program for a tour of the Makerspace. At the Makerspace the young adults were able to watch and learn about 3D printing, Laser Cutting, and the history of Makerspaces' and the building at which we reside.
Our friends from Rutgers News came out and did a segment all Rutgers students are familiar with "Rutgers Today". Check out the YOUTUBE video below!
