Dress for Success
In this design activity, students investigate materials engineering as it applies to weather and clothing. The students will design and analyze different combinations of materials for effectiveness in specific weather conditions. Analysis will include simulation of temperature, wind and wetness elements, as well as the functionality and durability of the final prototype.
