Ms. Santos' Fundamentals of Physics Students Have Day At The Races
It was race day for Ms. Santos' Fundamentals of Physics students today. Students had been given a task two weeks ago of building a moustrap powered car made from anything they could think of. The only rule was that the car could be powered by only one mousetrap.
Students were able to get help from a website on the physics of mousetrap powered racers.
Check out more photos from today's races below.
Dalton Barrucci's racer traveled a record 84-feet thanks to the added torque from a piece of a fishing pole attached to the mousetrap.
Ms. Santos was busy tabulating the results.
