The Life-Size Game of Mousetrap is a visually stunning work of science inspired art and performance: a triumph of engineering artistry.
Artist Mark Perez' 13 year labor of love is the classic children's board game come to life!

The Life-Size Mousetrap is a production of epic size, the transportation and storage of the semi-trailer alone is mind-boggling. We are constantly approached by schools, science centers, and urban events  that simply can't afford the production costs of the Life-Size Mousetrap. This is where YOU come in, even a small stream of individual funding can help this project reach more people and inspire creativity and wonder.

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. 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 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 complete with a unique soundtrack by one woman band Esmerelda Strange.

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.

$205 a month is the cost of storing our semi-trailer in a secured lot. Most show budgets don't quite cover the full cost of production let alone the months of storage for the 'trap. We would love to offset some of the storage costs so that we can focus those finances on the actual project!
