Provides educational modules on biomechanics principles targeted at middle and high school and undergraduate students
This project contains biomechanics modules on “Understanding Forces on the Body” and “Imaging, Materials, and Failure”. The modules include powerpoint slides and exercises to support the lessons. Exercises illustrate moment arms via a knee experiment and strength of materials via an imaging-based ACL tear example.
This project was supported by the National Science Foundation through:
