Creating a Concussion Sensor

Jessie Garcia had a head impact during a game and wanted to know if there was a way to check if she had a concussion. The only product available was too expensive, so she rolled up her sleeves and got to work creating a purely mechanical head impact sensor. Students at The LINC visited Jessie’s factory to tell her story.
