Eric Magnuson presents design challenge at KIPP Academy

Eric Magnuson presented his failure design challege to middle school students at KIPP Academy in Columbus, OH on October 20th 2015, through The Ohio State University's TEK 8 program. Eric's design challege asked students to tear a sheet of paper along a set path by inducing flaws in the paper. His goal was to demonstrate to students that engineers can design how mechanical parts will fail in order for the failure to be as safe as possible.
