All Tritt 4th graders will participate in the 2nd Annual Tritt Nerdy Derby Competition later this month. I have met with the 4th graders and they are aware of the details and excited about the project. A parent notification form will be coming home this week, along with wheels and axles. Please sign and return the form to confirm you are aware of the project expectations. For details about the Tritt Nerdy Derby please see the resources below. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that arise throughout the next few weeks.

This form will be sent home as a hard copy, but here is a downloadable version for your reference if needed:
Pictures below show track test segments. Width of track is about 2 3/4 inches. Rail width in middle of track is just over 1 1/4 inches. Rail height is about a 1/4 inch high. The wheels and axles provided by Tritt will fit with no problem. Any wheels or axles you chose to substitute may need to be tested on the track. Additionally, consider the distance between the ground and the bottom of your car. Test pieces are in my room in the Annex (room 605). Students may come anytime this week or next to test their cars.
