10th APEGNB Saint John Soap Box Derby

Saturday, June 8

​​Everyone loves a good old fashioned race and it doesn't get any better than racing down a city street, zooming past cheering fans and crossing the finish line.

The Saint John Branch of Engineers and Geoscientists New Brunswick (APEGNB) presented the Saint John Soap Box Derby on Cranston Avenue, Saturday, June 8. 2024

APEGNB believes in supporting community based events that help teachers and schools expand their Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) capabilities. 

The young racers, comprised of children from the ages of 7 - 17 who, with the help of their pit crews, raced in two car divisions - stock and super-stock.

Proceeds from the Derby provide opportunities for PALS schools of Greater Saint John to enjoy the many offerings of Rockwood Park. These activities complement the science and physical education curriculum for our students. Providing our children an opportunity to experience outdoor activities at Rockwood Park will help contribute to a life-long healthy lifestyle and in turn, a healthy community. 

These activities are at no cost to the student or school and even the cost of transportation is paid with funds raised from the Derby. During the 2022/23 school year, over 1900 students from 21 schools participated in PALS in the PARK.  

Thank you to all sponsors, racers, pit crews, parents, teachers and volunteers who supported the 2023 APEGNB Saint John Soap Box Derby!
