Physics Bridge Building and Mousetrap Car PT

Welcome to our PT blog, we are group C of class S203 consisting of Haw Jin Yu, Joshua Kwan, Nicholas Soon, and Ryan Chia.

Brief introduction for Mousetrap Car:

     We were tasked to design, build and test a car powered by a  standard issue mousetrap. For more specific requirements, please refer to the Engineering goals page.

     Before we stated building it we first had to brainstorm and discuss different designs. For a more in dept look please refer to the Designs and decision making matrix page.
  

    We would only know if our car would meet our requirements after our multiple test, to view our testing please refer to the testing and modification page.
  

     Lastly we came together after witnessing the test and discussed areas of strength weakness and improvement, to know more please refer to the post testing and discussion page.


Brief introduction for Bridge building:

     We were tasked to design, build and test a model bridge in 12 days. For more specific requirements, please refer to the Engineering goals page.

     Before we stated building it we first had to brainstorm and discuss different designs. For a more inept look please refer to the Designs and decision making matrix page.
 
     After finalising the bodega design we wanted we had to construct it, for an insight please refer to the Construction of bridge page.

    We would only know if our bridge was good enough if we tested it, to witness its 'trial by fire' please refer to the Testing of bridge page.
 
     Lastly we came together after witnessing the test and discussed areas of strength weakness and improvement, to know more please refer to the Discussion of bridge design after testing page.
