MSU Research Center Hosts Weekend 'Eggcellent' Teacher Workshop

August 17, 2011

A Mississippi State program training teachers to help students of all ages see the importance of seatbelt use includes a curriculum of applied mathematics, physics--and raw eggs.

Through its Mission Eggcellence program, the university's Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems demonstrates how seatbelts protect passengers during automobile crashes.

Established in 2003 as an interdisciplinary center which comprises engineering, research, development and technology transfer, CAVS focuses on material science, manufacturing process modeling, computational mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, multi-scale modeling, and vehicular systems engineering, among other areas.

More than 850 students from kindergarten-high school in 35 school districts have participated in the center's outreach initiative developed by Paul and Rosemary Cuicchi.
