More than a mousetrap vehicle kit, this is a complete start-to-finish design activity.
The student follows the design process and sees direct applications of science and technology as he or she designs and builds a mousetrap-powered vehicle and competes with classmates to design the fastest car or the car that goes the farthest.
It comes ready-to-assemble with pre-cut and pre-drilled parts so you can be ready for action and racing on the same day.
The Basic Kit can be assembled in less than 30 minutes for most first time builders and when finished it will travel from 30-45 meters. It comes with a 12-inch lever arm making it a good long-distance vehicle without the need for adjusting the lever arm length once assembled.
Each kit includes a mousetrap, balsa wood, four CDs (for wheels), CD spacers, thrust washers, brass tubing, string, and building instructions.
Requires white glue, not included.
Available as a single kit.
