[PS2] Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
SCI-HS.PS2.03 Apply scientific principles, such as Newton's 1st & 3rd Laws, and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision.
Clarification Statement: Physical Science: Examples of evaluation and refinement could include determining the success
of the device at protecting an object from damage and modifying the design to improve it.
Examples of a device could include a football helmet or a parachute.
Physics: Physics includes algebraic manipulations. Disciplinary Core Ideas PS2.A: Forces and Motion

Criteria and constraints also include satisfying any
requirements set by society, and they should be
quantified to the extent possible and stated in such a way
that one can tell if a given design meets them.
ETS1.C: Optimizing the Design Solution
Criteria may need to be broken down into simpler ones
that can be approached systematically.
