Mousetrap Racers, Flying Dogs, Guided Tour & Sangria…something for everyone!
It may be hot outside, but there are several cool programs happening at the College Park Aviation Museum in the next few weeks.  Mousetrap Racers Challenge is this Saturday, July 25 at Noon; Paws & Planes is next Saturday, August 1 and Sangria Under the Stars is Friday, August 14.  Read on for more details!
Engineering Challenge:
Part 2 – Mousetrap Racers
Saturday, July 25 at 12 Noon
FREE admission for contestants!
Regular admission applies for “Support Team”
Participate in the second of three Engineering Challenges!
Bring your mousetrap car ready to race at Noon!
All mousetrap cars must use a standard Victor mousetrap (no rat traps!) to propel the car, though the mousetrap can trigger a second method of propulsion. The car should be designed to travel as far as possible in a straight line. Contestants will have two attempts to record their maximum distance. Points will be awarded for the distance traveled and ability to travel in a straight line over a carpeted course.  Prizes will be awarded!
Devices must not use glass or any other hazardous material that poses a safety issue. (No CO2 containers, etc.)
