SAVE THE DATE: 8th Annual RC Custom Car Open

Design Competition: March 31, 2023

RC Car Race Day Competition: April 1, 2023

Registration opens Jan 2023!

The Remote Control Custom Car Open is an engineering and design competition for students in grades K-12, organized and led by a high school student committee. Students participate in teams of 2-4. As part of the registration fee, teams receive a complimentary membership to the Faulhaber Fab Lab and the opportunity to participate in various workshops that teach them how to design, fabricate and customize enhancements for their car. The program culminates in a two-track race day and design competition where winners receive cash and scholarship prizes! Throughout the unique eight-week program, participants build technical skills through the use of high-tech equipment like laser cutters, vinyl cutters, 3D printers and more. Collaboration and innovation allow students to develop life skills like creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking. Join us for a one-of-a-kind program you won't find anywhere else in the region!
