Widener Mousetrap Competition

Wednesday, November 4, 2015


For more than 30 years Widener School of Engineering has presented our popular “Mousetrap Competition” where hundreds of high school students from throughout the mid-Atlantic region compete to build a mousetrap-powered device. Student teams are provided a design problem, a set of specifications and encouraged to learn and develop their skills of planning, design, and implementation — all while working in a team environment, as do practicing engineers. Join hundreds of other students as they place their mousetrap-powered devices into competition.

Last year the Mousetrap Competition was sponsored by Victor. Victor is a leader in rodent control solutions and was proud to be last year's sponsor for the Mousetrap Design Competition where participants used Victor brand wooden mouse snap traps in order to create mouse trap-powered devices at the event.

This event requires teams to be registered by their teachers.
