In this Triple Crossed resource, from the Centre for Science Education and supported by the Astra Zeneca Teaching Trust, Marc Bolan's 1977 car crash is used as the context for an activity that covers forces, car safety and advances in the car industry. Students are asked to consider the differences between the old style Mini in which Bolan died and the new version, investigating what advances have been made in car safety since 1977.

The activity ends with a self-assessment sheet and is accompanied by teachers' guidance notes.
