Necessity of Protective Equipment

Understanding necessity of protective equipment and improving athletic performance on the ice as a hockey player using mechanical physics.

by Grace L. Class of 2021

I explored questions such as how does a helmet protect from the force of a shot? what position will minimize the force of being hit on the board? What angle should one push off of to optimize the force of a skate’s push?
