About This Item


Save a mouse; create a mousetrap-powered car instead! With the Mousetrap Vehicle 2.0, kids will harness the energy stored in a mousetrap to propel their own uniquely designed Vehicles! Other mousetrap cars turn out looking the same, but with TeacherGeek, each Mousetrap Vehicle design is unique! Kids experiment, learn through failure, and redesign their Vehicles to tackle all sorts of different challenges. Design for speed, distance, or to stop on a target; tinker with levers, frames, linkages, and more – kids can endlessly improve and redesign their creations. Grades 6 – 12+ (different documents for different ages). Some adult assistance is helpful for 6th-graders. TeacherGeek is not a toy; it’s way better! Kids love making real things, especially when they get to use age-appropriate tools. Kids will need a TeacherGeek Reamer (1 included in each 10-pack), Phillips screwdriver, and scissors



• READY-TO-GO PACKS – just hand them out and get started: single packs + pre-divided 10-packs include printed guides and plenty of extra parts

• AMAZING EDITABLE CURRICULUM – award-winning, editable documents, videos, labs, challenges & more get kids designing, investigating, and competing in challenges

• STANDARDS ALIGNED – curriculum is teacher-designed and aligned to NGSS, CCSS, ITEEA, and state standards

• REAL ENGINEERING – kids actually design, test, redesign, and repeat; there’s no perfect design so kids are never done making

• REAL DATA – data so good kids can measure the effects of design changes, even using the data to complete optional science labs
