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 and obstacle course?
Grab your tools, duct tape (or welder!), all-terrain wheels 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 at Riverwalk Plaza in East Village.
