Applied Physics Lab: Muscle and Bone

Friday, May 18

10:00am-12:00pm

Ages 10-14

Together we break chicken bones by applying a load until we reach a fracture point. In teams, students design either a splint or a cast to mend the broken bones. Once set, designs are tested by applying the previous load. As biomedical engineers in training, students study devices used in the recovery of a strained muscles. Teams engineer their own designed device to help an injured bicep bend with a mechanical advantage.
