Description

More than a mousetrap vehicle kit, this is a complete start-to-finish design activity. The student follows the design process and sees direct applications of science and technology as he or she designs and builds a mousetrap-powered vehicle and competes with classmates to design the fastest car or the car that goes the farthest.
