Join us for an interactive, hands-on workshop as we build mousetrap cars from scratch!
When: Saturday, January 25th, 9AM-12PM
Where: The South Florida Science Center's new Stiles-Nicholson STEM Education Center, which is located across the street from the main building, East of the main parking lot.
What: This three-hour session will be presented in an interactive, inquiry style to demonstrate the construction process of a mousetrap car. The session is infused with elements of engineering best practices and can be extended to include operation and analysis of the mousetrap car. Participants will make precise metric measurements, use basic tools, and follow verbal and written directions to construct a basic, geared mousetrap car to meet the specifications shown on a technical drawing of a mousetrap car.
