Educator Training - Mousetrap Powered Cars
Thursday, 12/15/2016 (04:30 PM - 07:30 PM)

 This workshop is for educators interested in a fun, hands-on project for youth to design and build a small car powered by a mousetrap.  The curriculum supports youth in designing and building a car that they can modify and experiment with different features to make the car go as far as possible.  It is suitable for 4-H Clubs and SPINs, afterschool programs and elementary and middle school engineering projects.

Curriculum Description

Can you build a model car and power it with a mousetrap?  How far can you make it go?  Join other young engineers and design and build your own mousetrap powered car.  Make design modifications to make it roll faster and farther and then test your car to see if your design modifications work.  Then race your car in the 4-H Maker Challenge to see how it measures up against the cars of other young engineers.

 Mousetrap Cars Curriculum Outline

  1. Building a Basic Car – Participants use common materials to build a basic car that can be powered by a mousetrap.
  2. Attaching a Mousetrap – Participants attach a mousetrap to their car and try different ways to power the car.
  3. Modifying and Testing the Car - Participants modify their car and test different variables to make their car go farther.
  4. Building a Racecar – Using what they have learned, youth start from scratch to build a car to enter in the 4-H Maker Challenge
  5. Presenting my Car (optional) – Participants will prepare a short presentations on the construction of their car, the design/build process and the overall experience.
