ICS students visit Humanetics Innovative Solutions

A day spent at Humanetics Innovative Solutions brings the science of the classroom to everyday life. 

Students from Immaculate Conception School see what a 10 year old dummy would look like made by Humanetics.

The third, fourth and fifth graders from Immaculate Conception School got an inside look last week at science and technology at work in our modern world; the students were able to tour Humanetics Innovative Solutions in Huron.  Humanetics is the global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs), also known as Crash test dummies.   Humanetics produces a wide variety of products including regulated and non-regulated ATDs ranging in size from newborn infants to large adults that are used in automotive, military and aerospace industries.

The students were able to watch the manufacturing process of the dummies and also see the testing of the products.  This 45,000 square foot facility is the first to be built specifically for the manufacturing of crash test dummies; it incorporates a state-of-the-art machining center, engineered vinyl and rubber molding systems, and a 4,500 square foot centrally located dummy certification lab. It was a great day of hands of learning and discovery for the children of ICS.
