Organize a Scrapheap Challenge 2012

Ever heard of Scrapheap Challenge? Scrapheap Challenge is an engineering game show broadcasted in the UK. In the show, teams of contestants have 10 hours in which to build a working machine that can do a specific task, using materials available in a scrapheap. In 2010, TEDxDelft 2011 speaker Rolf Hut organised a similar Scrapheap Challenge for talented students of the TU Delft. We think it would be great to have something similar as a side event of TEDxDelft – of which this year’s theme is Never Grow Up! We are looking for someone who would like to coordinate and organize such a Scrapheap Challenge as an independent side event (with TEDxDelft licensee Rob Speekenbrink and Rolf ‘I am a tinkerer’ Hut as inspirational advisers). Are you talented and willing to walk the extra mile to make TEDxDelft Scrapheap Challenge into a reality? Please contact Rob.
