Design a Bicycle Helmet
The goal of the activities is for students to understand the basics of engineering associated with safety products. Using a bicycle helmet helps to protect the brain and neck during a crash. In order to do this effectively, helmets must have some sort of crushable material to absorb the shock of a collision and a strap system to ensure that the protection stays in place. The exact design of the helmet will depend on the needs and specifications of the user. In this activity students will be intr
