Sponsored by Widener's School of Engineering, the 30th Annual Engineering Mousetrap Competition requires high school students to build a vehicle that will be powered by only a mousetrap.
The student teams from regional high schools were sent a common design problem and set of vehicle specifications. They have all been encouraged to "think" like practicing engineers, using the guidelines to plan and implement a competitive vehicle design.
The high school teams gathered at Widener's Schwartz Athletic Center on Wednesday to compete against each other to see whose design has the most - creativity, functionality, and can go the furthest using just a mousetrap as power.
