Our mousetrap powered boat captures the kinetic energy released by the spring of the trap to turn a large propeller. Students have the opportunity to design the length and shape of the boat's pontoons as well as a system to transfer the energy from the trap to the prop. Included in the kit are bevel gears and gears of different diameters. Challenge your students to “think out of the box" for this unusual use of the mousetrap. Fill a rain gutter with water and hold timed and distance races for hours of fun and learning. Minor soldering is required.
