Stone Middle School Eighth Graders Build Mousetrap Cars

Ryan Trenchard and Kruz Chappell building their mousetrap car.

 

Stone Middle School eighth graders learn about the Engineering Design Process by building Mousetrap Cars. Mrs. Laughlin’s eighth-grade classes, working groups of 2-3, spent a class period researching different designs and evaluating what is good or bad about the designs. After researching, students designed their mousetrap car and drew a “blueprint.” They are working on building their design and will then test their prototype and make modifications as needed. They base the final grade on the distance traveled by the car once the students feel they have the “perfect” car.
