Eighth graders pitched products to a panel of engineers, scientists, and high school science teachers.
Each year, 8th-grade students are tasked with designing a product to protect people or things they care about from collisions due to force. As part of their unit on Newton's Laws of Motion, they developed a product, built a prototype, wrote an engineering brief, and presented the brief and product to a panel of engineers and scientists in a professional presentation format.
This year's inventions included: Aha! Seizure Hold-a-cup Protection Puffer Chef Mode Safe Knife
