For the first One Day Workshop of the year, thirteen young tinkerers came in and spent a Saturday building gravity-powered (i.e. motorless) karts.
The day began with tool safety training. We looked at an example kart to get inspiration for wheel mounts, steering mechanisms and the all-important seat.
Here at Tinkering School, we know that not every project is guaranteed success--if you are really, truly building your own gravity kart, failure is a distinct possibility.
So, we were thrilled when all six groups managed to produce working, steering karts.
The karts were as unique and varied as their users. Visit our Flickr page for more pictures and videos of the karts in action!
