Crash Test Investigation Challenge

Year 13 students explore the causes of car crashes and learn how to use physics to reconstruct a car crash from the evidence left at the scene.  As part of the project the students visit Huntington Fire Station and investigate a mocked up car crash.  In completing the project students gain a BTEC in Applied Sciences.

PC Bimson demonstrates the difference between crash damage and rescue damage to Afshan.

 

Year 13 students watch a skid test, before calculating the speed of the vehicle from skid marks.
