When you bike, board, or play ball, you wear a helmet. But do you know how helmets work? Use biomechanical engineering to design your own helmet for a crash-test dummy.  Start by investigating how to protect pasta from breaking upon impact. Use information about the brain and concussions to design, develop, create a refine a new helmet. Curriculum provided by the Boston Museum of Science Engineering is Everywhere program.
