MESA Mouse Trap Car

We’ve just updated the rules for the MESA Mousetrap Car event at Physics Day.  We would like to encourage as many students as possible to participate.  Teams must be composed of between 2 and 4 MESA students.

This is the alternate event for MESA.  If students would like to qualify to compete at nationals in Philadelphia, they should compete in the Arduino Clean Air Solutions competition instead.

To participate in this competition, students should join their local school’s MESA club or (if none exists) form a new MESA club.
