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 event requires teams to be registered by their teachers.

For more information, or to be added to our mailing list, teachers and students should contact:
