NC Gravity Games - register now!

Greetings from NCSciFest HQ!

There's still time left to register for the 2020 Gravity Games, and apply for sponsorship funding!

The NC Gravity Games will return for the 10th time on Saturday, April 25th, as middle and high-school teams from across the state design, build, and race their gravity-powered cars through the streets of Lenoir. Plus the STEM-themed street festival with hands-on activities, games, food trucks, and more gives spectators and teams a chance to have even more fun on race-day.

There are multiple divisions so teams with any level of experience can participate, and Google provides some amazing prizes for podium finishers! Check out the attached document for some additional details or visit for the full event information and to register.

And thanks to support from Google, the NC Science Festival team is able to offer sponsorships of $1000 to help offset the costs of materials and travel for teams from diverse parts of the state to compete. Apply here.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
