PT 2.1 Engineering Goals

Part 1:

Brainstorm on the various design criterions to be considered during the design process of

your mousetrap car (e.g. weight, wheels, materials, shape, size). Document discussions.

The car needs to be as lightweight as possible, therefore we need to use light materials. The size needs to fit the physical dimensions [Length 30cm, Width 15cm, Heigh 15cm]. The wheels need to be as thin as possible such that the car will not encounter too much friction when running. The shape also needs to have as little surface area from the front as possible so that there will not be as much air resistance.

Part 2:

Using the Engineering Design Process, come up with 3 unique mousetrap car designs that fulfills the specifications

Design 1

Design 2

Design 3
