To better understand the concept of motion and force, this years physics class took some time to build mousetrap cars.
There was a wide variety of building concepts and materials used by the students. No two cars were built the same and they all moved at a variety of speeds and traveled varying distances.
The winning car in both distance and speed was mainly built with the use of K’nex and was constructed by Austin Ball and Elliott Ohlrogge. The winning car traveled at a top speed of four feet per second and had the greatest distance of traveling 29 feet.
Overall the cars were a great success in helping students better understand the concept of motion.
