For the code. I guess, this was 3 years ago!
I love the trap :-) however your mouse is almost of the house variety and will come back into the warm comfort of you house unless you walked him 2 or 3 miles away!
IF your new then your starting at far too high a level to expect success.You need to start at a low level and build skills and knowledge.Start by learning something about microcontrollers, your going to need to know. Start simple flashing LEDS and reading switches.Start with wheeled robots. Examine sensors.http://www.instructables.com/id/Lets-Program-a-PIC...http://www.instructables.com/id/Reading-Sensors-Wi...Then at some time in the future come back and discuss specific issues you may be having.Believe me this is the best approach even if it sounds boring.
Probably. However that won't get you over the practical limitations.I assume this is a student project.Your now in that area where you have to do your own research and evaluation. You need to look at equipment specifications - Evaluate how others have done this and start to think about the skills your going to need to make it work.It is NOT for others to do this work for you. Otherwise your degree/exam qualification would belong to them!Start reading, taking notes and valuatingI repeat that from a purely practical point of view this isn't a workable system for schools, at least not in the UK.
I don't know why but this worries me.
I doubt it a racoon has very mobile hands and will soon find out how to lift the door as it isn't latched down.As I built it it would fit a Racoon either.HOWEVER the principles could / should work. You need to make a method of latching the door closed once it is down, a normal gate latch could work or a simple spring latch as in the picture below (Click to see full size)

Ok - Now the hard part - take them out!
Why not take a balloon and attach to a straw? If you want a particular shape, make a frame to snap round the balloon.
Ah yes, unfortunately Life doesn't let you cheat so easily. Wouldn't it be better to just pay attention and get an education?
Just boil the water before freezing
To be honest I don't know, we don't get gophers in the UK. However as long as you use a suitable bait that they will go for it should work.A rabbits is not nimble enough, (or bright enough), to try to lift the door by pulling at the bottom. A gopher may be a bit brighter.It doesn't cost much so why not give it a go and let us know.
This isn't free in any sense other then your not paying for it. The transmitters, and the users of that transmitted energy would be very cross with you for blanking out their reception if you were to try to draw any amount of power from the air.Whilst on this type of "free" energy you can get 50 volts from your phone line. It's free in so far as you won't pay any more for tapping it;. - The phone company take a dim view though.
I know you say this may not be such a good idea, but Lipo cells have a distinct dislike for providing huge currents. this is effectively a short circuit and my experience with RC models tells me this results in the cells bloating and quickly becoming useless if not actually igniting.
1. Not all cars have the handy pull up knob, in fact none of the 3 cars we have in the UK do.2. On each of them this will result in the alarm setting off as soon as the door is opened. :-( 3. Easier to use a wire coat hanger with a loop bent in the end.
