Welcome to the 2019 NC Gravity Games, which will be held on April 13.
The NC Gravity Games is a signature event of the North Carolina Science Festival. The main events are a gravity-powered race and STEM extravaganza designed to get students revved up about science and engineering. The event is brought to you by Google, Appalachian State University, the University of North Carolina and the City of Lenoir.
The 2019 engineering challenge is "Transformation": to design and construct a vehicle that starts the race with 3 or 4 wheels in contact with the ground, and then “transforms” during the race, to only 2 wheels in contact with the ground by the end.
