Middle school science students build race cars

Eighth graders designed a mousetrap car, made a materials list and came to class with a plan. They began building their cars on Tuesday and have two more days to work on them in class. Students had to problem solve as they encountered difficulties with their plan. Completed cars are due on April 18th when a competition will be held in class to find the fastest car, car traveling the longest distance, best design and the car made of the most recycled materials.
