Through this lesson, in addition to sharing knowledge, I would like to introduce students to the joy of learning and using the subject of Solid Mechanics early on in their education. I chose Elasticity because it forms the stepping stone to the general subject of Solid Mechanics and it is reasonably easy to introduce at the high-school level. Also, I hope this hands-on, multi-media approach to teaching will complement your own method of inspiring the students to pursue science and engineering education.
