Fieldston Middle 8th Graders Send Mousetrap Cars Soaring
Each year, 8th Graders at Fieldston Middle cap off a physics unit related to motion by designing and building cars powered by mousetraps.
The project culminates in the mousetrap car race, where the entire 8th Grade gathers in the Varsity Gym to test their creations.
Students compete at different stations across the gym to see which mousetrap car travels the fastest or the longest distance.
If a mousetrap car breaks or is damaged during a race, John Baglio, Fieldston Middle Engineering Teacher, is nearby to help with repairs.
The mousetrap car race is an exciting, fun-filled event that 8th Graders look forward to all year!
