Materials testing, engineering a football boot

Inspired by the Born to Engineer video from Sam Fraser, an engineer who combines his love for engineering with a passion for football, this resource supports students to increase their understanding of materials engineering, including materials testing, design and material properties (Hooke’s Law, shear, compression, tension, etc). 

These videos accompany the resource. The include an interview with Sam Fraser, a mechanical engineer working for his PhD at Loughborough University Sports Technology Institute.
