Come, join this community build group. Learn makers skills and meet people by helping to design, build, pilot or simply watch please come out! We may make more than one sculpture, and if you'd like to enter your own team/have experience in the matter we'd love to hear from you!There will be a short introduction to the Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture race, covering the course and some insights/pictures from recent runnings of the race. Afterwards, we'll have a group discussion on vehicle design, teams, interest in piloting, etc.

The race is over 200 days away - but it's a doozy, you need a human-powered vehicle that can cover roughly 15 miles in 8 hours. Most of the course is on the road, except for the bits where you have to paddle through Baltimore Harbor! Oh, and there's a muddy obstacle course in the park. KINETICTASTIC!
