Bill Schlageter, director of marketing at the Children’s Museum, said thousands of people poured into Maker Faire Pittsburgh 2016 this past weekend and it was full of brilliant inventors, artists and makers.

“All attendees, children, families, they couldn’t say enough about how wonderful it was to see a variety of makers and artisans, and especially the Power Racing Series,” Schlageter said.

The Power Racing series had been traveling nationally and its last stop was at the Maker Faire.

“It was a wonderful buffet of terrific creativity and inspiration,” Schlageter said.

The Children's Museum dubs the Power Racing Series as "a crazy beautiful blend of ingenuity and smarts. It is a mix between the creativity of a Boy Scout’s Derby Race and the craziness that occurs during Mario Kart (even with real bananas at times!)"
