OBJECTIVES
Using the Engineering Design Process, students
will carry out 2 EDP projects:
1)Design a Gut.
2)Design a multipurpose helmet.

PROJECT DEFINITION
Biology and Engineering will be connected through a
multidisciplinary, hands-on unit-embedded project.
Students will be introduced to the Engineering Design
Process in the first unit of the year, The Chemistry of Life.
As they learn about Organic Molecules and Enzymes,
students will carry out an engineering-based learning
project where they will design a gut.
Then, students will engage in a multi-disciplinary, teambased engineering challenge where they will design a
multi-purpose helmet. Students will be introduced to the
project, they will experience a field trip, guest speakers,
and learn to use new tools for the design and construction
of a prototype. Then, they will finalize their solution and
present it to a panel of judges.

ACTION PLAN & IMPLEMENTATION
SCHEDULE
Create the project plan outline and timelines. Provide
rationale for incorporation into current unit designs.
Design a Gut to be implemented with The
Chemistry of Life
Design a Multipurpose Helmet to be
implemented with Independent Research
Project Requirement
Present the Project Plan and Outline with Timelines to
Administration for Approval to move forward with the
plan.
Request SolidWorks Software
Request installation of SolidWorks on school
hardware/equipment.
Work on student handouts & rubrics (Lesson Planning)
Engage with community partnerships
o Introduction to Brain (Nervous system) and
Brain Injury with Boston University.
o Trip to US Army Labs Natick.
o Sample Helmet Investigations with Helmet
Industry Manufacturers and design groups.
o Student Team Formation and Enlistment of
Mentors (college students in mechanical and
industrial engineering).
o Students Design and Conduct Market Surveys.
o Students undergo tutorials for 3-D Modeling
Software.
o Students design, model, test using 3-D
Software.
o Students redesign, if necessary.
o Students construct prototype. Enlist prototype
building at University or Corporate Sponsor
sites.
o Students Present their Solutions to an Industry,
Community, and University Partners Evaluation
Team.
o Wrap up and report out.
