Creative Crash Test Cars

This maker challenge from TeachEngeneering challenges students to design or improve an existing passenger compartment so that it better withstands front-end collisions, protecting riders from injury and resulting in minimal vehicle structural damage.

With a raw egg as the test passenger, teams use provided materials to add their own safety features onto either a small-size wooden car kit or their own model cars created from scratch. The accompanying web page includes a guiding worksheet and pre/post-quizzes.
