Humanitarian Demining is the process of detecting, removing and disposing of landmines. Millions of landmines are buried in more than 80 countries resulting in 20,000 civilian victims every year. MIT Design for Demining is a design course that spans the entire product design and development process from identification of needs and idea generation to prototyping and blast testing to manufacture and deployment. Technical, business and customer aspects are addressed. Students learn about demining while they design, develop and deliver devices to aid the demining community. Past students have invented or improved hand tools, protective gear, safety equipment, educational graphics and teaching materials. Some tools designed in previous years are in use worldwide in the thousands. Course work is informed by a class field trip to a US Army base for demining training and guest expert speakers. Less

This activity demonstrates the importance of wearing a helmet to protect the brain. An egg is used to symbolize a head with the shell as the skull and the inside of the egg as the brain. One egg is dropped onto a newspaper and breaks open. A second egg is dropped, but this egg wears a "helmet" made out of paper, Styrofoam or other materials to cushion the egg's fall. Learners can participate in constructing safety helmets for the egg or simply watch the demonstration. Watermelons can also be used in place of eggs. Less
