Sports Material Testing: 

Sports Material Testing Lab that included testing different sports equipment such as pads and a sneaker. I used an MTS machine to test the pressure that the different materials can tolerate.

Sports Material Testing: 

Sports Material Testing Stress Strain Young’s Modulus.

Over Hydration Lab: 

Over Hydration Lab Objective Test the hydration of dried vegetables using mass change to determine the amount of hydration. Procedure Soaked celery and carrots in different liquids (water, salt water, Gatorade, and pickle juice) and measured the weight after certain time periods.
