Widener Mousetrap Competition

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

For more than 30 years Widener 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.

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

Registration for this event is now closed!

This event requires teams to be registered by their teachers. Anyone interested in competing can read the following rules and regulations.
