Biomechanical engineering is a field that involves combining mechanical engineering and biology. Biomechanical engineers use what they know about physics and biology to better understand how physical forces impact living organisms. Biomechanical engineers develop solutions to a broad range of problems including the improvement of safety equipment like helmets, life jackets, and bulletproof vests.  In this workshops, we'll be learning about the Engineering is Elementary project on designing a safety helmet.

This is a fun and exciting introduction into the world of biomechanical engineering. The workshop is appropriate for adults and volunteers who work with youth in out-of-school time or classrooms.  Content most appropriate for youth ages 5th-9th, but can be adapted as needed.
