Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts become more difficult and less interesting for many students in middle school, thus discouraging many from pursuing science and engineering. To aid in student learning and motivation, we collaborated with middle school teachers to develop engineering design projects to teach difficult STEM concepts. Biomechanics projects appear to motivate student learning and reinvigorate the teaching of engineering topics.
