Generously illustrated and fun to read, Doc Fizzix’s Mousetrap Powered Cars & Boats examines in depth the physics of mousetrap vehicle construction. It takes students through each variable that must be considered during construction – making lightweight frames, reducing friction, making wheels, building for speed, and building for distance. Packed with excellent construction tips and written in simple, easy-to-understand terms, this lighthearted book will give your students the information they need to build winning mousetrap vehicles.
Note: This book replaces both the student and teacher editions of the popular Mouse Trap Cars: The Secrets to Success. The author has combined both volumes into one book and added even more information.
