The Mousetrap Car Tournament champion was Hally Johnson, followed by Toby Scherbarth in second place, and Mia Skinner coming in third. The object of the lesson was for students each to create a vehicle that was solely powered by an unmodified mousetrap. The vehicle was to be no longer than 18 inches and no wider than 10 inches. Students were encouraged to decorate their vehicles but the mousetrap couldn’t be decorated or altered in anyway. Students were able to earn points based on how closely they followed the project guidelines; those winning the tournament earned extra credit.
