Mousetrap Vehicle Activity

  • Sale
  • Regular price $59.98

Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door. Build a better Mousetrap Vehicle with TeacherGeek, and who knows what will happen next! Kids really hammer, screw and cut TeacherGeek components to build the frame, adding the mousetrap’s power to set, launch and go! They cycle through the design & engineering process, experimenting with gears, recycling bin materials, 3-D printed elements or additional components to go farther, faster or ferry school supplies across the room. To increase traction, install the included wheel tires. Apply the science of kinetic and potential energy, simple machines and friction as you re-engineer the ultimate mousetrap…vehicle. An excellent activity for the classroom, after school, scouts, church or the kitchen table. Build once, tinker forever. Students need TeacherGeek tool sets to build their vehicles. Documents available for grades 3-5, 6-8.

Sold in packs of 10 or individually.
