The 2020 Dream It. Do It. 500 is one of a kind!! This year, we have handed out over 300 kits to schools, teachers, club members, and young manufacturers. We still have more kits so if you are interested in designing, building, testing, racing, and selling a rubber band-powered car, please register here to get a DIDI 500 kit. Also, our Instructional Video will take you through the steps to design and build your car, while following our DIDI 500 rules. Work individually or in teams of two, three, or four – up to you! Thank you to our area schools, teachers, and parents for engaging our future manufacturers as well as members of MAST and the Ralph Wilson Foundation.
Over 200 participants – high school students, middle school students, Girls in Mfg Club members, Girl Scouts, SBU ENACTUS students, engineers, and technicians – enjoyed our 7th annual DIDI 500. Please visit the Olean Times Herald for a great article as well as a video by one of our visitors. 360RIZE filmed our event with their new 360 camera! Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers. Looking forward to next year!
Students participating in this year’s DIDI 500 enjoyed a new twist to the 6th Annual DIDI 500. At the last minute, high school students were given a motor to design, assemble and add to their rubber-band powered car! The event was divided into three leagues and a great time was had by all. Thank you to the engineers, technicians and SBU students who volunteered the day of the event. Looking forward to next year!
