Tyngsborough Public Library's Mousetrap Science Assembly

Join Jungle Jim at the Tyngsborough Public Library for Mousetrap Science on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 11:00 am!

In the assembly, a mouse is loose in the library. Jungle Jim proposes to build a BETTER mousetrap; one that will capture the mouse without injuring it. Building a new invention from scratch might be tricky, so we discuss the five simple machines that go into more advanced machines: the lever, the wheel, the pulley, the inclined plane, and the screw. Best suited for ages 3-10. Learn more at
