Product Description
Students use the stored potential energy in an mousetrap to power a car. The competition is to make a car that will travel in a straight line further than anyone else in the class.

I encourge my students to search "Mousetrap Cars" on Google and on YouTube to get ideas on designs, especially if they are struggling with their car.
