## Mousetrap Car Variations

**Variations/Extensions:**

- Require the students to design a car that stops at a particular distance. This requires the addition of a braking system.

- Utilize a speed criteria instead of distance. Require students to design a car that can travel a two meter distance in the shortest time possible.

- Have students calculate the acceleration of their cars.

- Allow students to use more than one mousetrap in the design.
