Teens: Build Rubber Band Cars at Art Center

Graduate Industrial Design Students at Art Center are hosting a FREE Formula - E workshop & tour of Art Center for Armory teens Friday, August 5.

Spaces are limited to 12 students so RSVPs are required.

RSVP to Jenine at [email protected] by 5 pm on Wednesday, August 3.

What is Formula E?
Formula E (elastic) is an annual competition for design and engineering students to design a radio controlled car that is powered by 16 feet of rubber band. Vehicles are designed by teams from several schools and all cars use the same rubber bands and are allowed only two servos. This tour of Art Center and workshop will give students an introduction to the Art Center campus and the design and production process of creating a Formula-E racer. This is a great opportunity for students interested in design, engineering, cars/racing, or attending Art Center.

Workshop Location:
Art Center College of Design 1700 Lida St, Pasadena, CA 91103 12 pm -5 pm, Friday August 5, 2016
