Intro: Record Setting MouseTrap VehicleFor my engineering design class our first project was to design and build a mousetrap vehicle. Step 1: MaterialsYou can find these materials anywhere or purchase them for a very cheap price. Step 5: WheelsOnce the axels are all set, slide a nut then a washer followed by the wheel, then washer followed by a nut. The record from run 4, was for speed, our professor said in her 20 years of teaching, she never saw a time below 5 seconds. Sandy Sorensen, Craig Middle School seventh- and eighth-grade science teacher, examines eighth-grader Ian Day’s mousetrap car Tuesday morning during the school’s annual mousetrap car rally in the CMS gym. Tanner Hampton, 14, a Craig Middle School eighth-grader, tweaks his mousetrap car Tuesday during the school’s 15th annual mousetrap car rally in the CMS gym. Slowly but steadily, Tanner Hampton’s mousetrap car crept away from the starting line Tuesday morning. His car didn’t make it to the other end of the Craig Middle School gym, where he and other eighth-graders participated in the 15th annual mousetrap car rally. The rally was the culminating activity in a physics unit, said Sandy Sorensen, a CMS seventh- and eighth-grade science teacher. To construct a mousetrap car, students had to apply their new-found knowledge of simple machines, specifically levers, wheels and axles. The concept behind the contraption is simple: attach a lever to the spring in the center of a mousetrap, tie a string to it, then wrap the other end of the string around the car’s back axle. When the lever is released, the spring pulls the lever forward, thereby unwinding the string and turning the axle.

Getting the hang of making the cars go without the aid of a push or a motor is harder than it looks. Students are evaluated on their cars’ performance, Sorensen said, yet the project’s importance goes beyond the grade. One student who doesn’t do particularly well with worksheets and the like “was the first one to hand in his car,” she said.

Students used a variety of materials, including CDs and vinyl records, to construct their cars. He chose vinyl records for the tires because they would get more distance with a single turn, he said.

She believes it can get children interested in science when more traditional methods cannot.

I have a physics project due thursday and I bought all the materials listed here but it didnt say anything about the frame in the materials list.
Im stressing out about this so could u pleease email me where i could get a frame like this?
My partner and i have decided to make ours based off of yours, since it is so wonderfully designed.
Because i know that there are different sizes and that would most likely effect the speed and distance. But if you were able to get the smaller records, and use them for the front wheels, that would make it look awesome. I have to make one for a physics class but we're only allowed a single mouse trap and nothing else that could add to its potential work.
