HS: Mousetrap Car- Physics Challenge Print

Mr. Richard's Physics Class will be hard to beat this year at the State Physics Olympics on Wednesday, April 17. One team competing is Jacob G. and Dillon D. in the Mousetrap Car Category. The car must meet the following requirements: a minimum of 2 wheels, the sole power source of the car shall be a 2" x 4" mousetrap, changes to the mouse trap are allowed (heat energy changing tension of spring, four holes may be drilled in the trap, the trip mechanism may be removed, one string/ wire may may be attached to the bow for transmission of mechanical energy). The car is allowed two trials to record the distance traveled. We are cheering for Jacob & Dillion! Good Luck!
