Pinewood Grand Prix

The Frankfort Girl Scouts Pinewood Grand Prix is our version of a pinewood derby!  What is a pinewood derby?  It is a wood car racing event! Grab an adult and build your very own unpowered, unmanned miniature car from wood.  The kit comes with a block of pine wood, plastic wheels and metal axles.  Your job is to take tools and construct a car.  Some girls design their car for speed and some come to show off their unique designs!
