Crash Helmet Design, Prototyping, and Testing: An Egg-Citing Physics and Engineering Design PBL

In this authentic project, high school students develop crash helmets with a goal of protecting a population of people from traumatic head (brain) injury. Using eggs to simulate human heads, students employ the design thinking process by engaging in real-world research, scientific data collection, engineering prototyping, and performance testing.
