In these times of seemingly endless virtual and digital experiences, it is crucial for children and adults alike to have real-life encounters with the scientific principles that govern our world. The Life Size Game of Mousetrap is a visually stunning work of science inspired art and performance: a triumph of engineering artistry. The world’s largest Mousetrap board game tours the country using the tools of wonder and excitement to plant the seeds of curiosity with a 25 ton Rube Goldberg machine. The Mousetrap has combined Newtonian physics and large scale art with performance to create a unique brand of engineering fun packaged into a traveling road show. The Mousetrap has reached audiences of all ages via science centers, museums, and festivals across the United States. Our goal is to create a team of artists, funders, and educators who think the words "education" and "imagination" should be the same idea.
