Time to work with both form AND function.

For your final 106 project, you must use a mousetrap as the engine for an aesthetically interesting functioning vehicle. Yes, this is a project done by kids in science classes across the country, but not only must you get your vehicle to work, you need to get it to work WELL (think speed and distance) and look good!

Consider the following…

The spring in the mousetrap will provide the energy — what other pieces do you need for the car to function?
What materials could you use?
Don’t forget, this problem is about visual design as well as functional design. What formal design elements can you use to make your design visually pleasing?
