NEW, NOT USED!!! Offering more than just a fun project, mousetrap-powered vehicles are a gateway to many of the great concepts in science. Projects using mousetrap vehicles have dramatically grown in popularity in classrooms across the nation, and this guide teaches science students of all ages the basic construction secrets they need to build winning mousetrap-powered vehicles, using nothing more than common household items. This guide also identifies the variables that dramatically effect the performance of mousetrap racers and offers prescriptive advice based on primary scientific concepts such as friction, inertia, force, and acceleration. With easy-to-follow directions for creating the ultimate speed-trap dragster, long-distance racer, boats, and more, this activity guide is designed to eliminate the guesswork and make learning fun. Working together, students and their parents will learn how to build vehicles that not only win the race for top speed, but also take home the trophy for longest distance traveled. Alden J. Balmer, also known as Doc Fizzix, was selected as the 1996 Most Outstanding Science Teacher in Texas and has been building mousetrap-powered vehicles for 18 years. He has been featured on several national TV programs and magazines, including Boy's Life, Physics Today, and The Science Teachers. He lives in Round Rock, Texas.
