Widener Mousetrap Competition

Wednesday, October 23, 2013


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.

Registration is now CLOSED for the 2013 Mousetrap Competition!

Anyone interested in competing can read the following rules and regulations.

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