Final of the National Construction Competition

On Friday, June 10, 2022, the Final of the National Construction Competition took place, the aim of which was to build vehicles powered by mousetraps and driving them over a distance of 12 meters in the shortest possible time.

Over 50 teams from all over Poland applied for the competition, of which 35 teams took part, and 18 vehicles reached the finish line. The vehicles were made of a mousetrap (each team had the same mousetraps) and of ... Imagination!

The competition was full of excitement as each team had the ability to release the same vehicle 3 times. In between races, there was an opportunity to improve the designs, which was often associated with great emotions!

The essence of the competition was learning through play and observation that in the construction of even the smallest devices the laws of physics are of great importance. And that understanding these laws allows you to directly apply textbook knowledge in practice.
