Ready? Set. Go! Discover the power of kinetic energy as you design, build, and test a racer using the power of a mousetrap. The Maryland Science Center will provide a free kit containing a mousetrap, rubber mouse, assorted racer-building materials, instructions, and tips on the race day. You take care of the rest! See if your racer will go the distance down the track and get your mouse to the cheese.
Pre-registered teams of up to four people will pick up their kits when they arrive. Teams can check-in beginning at 10:30am. Racer construction will begin at 11:00am. At 1:00pm, teams can test their designs on our race track!
All teams must register in advance. Registration is FREE and includes all your building materials. Registration includes FREE admission to MSC for up to 4 team members. Participation is limited to 36 teams.
