I know this is more of a K-12 education context, but Flinn Scientific (www.flinnsci.com) has a series of videos around goggle safety. One of them uses a whipped cream pie in the face demonstration to illustrate protection by goggles. Another demo they show involves adding 6 M HCl to a bowl containing a raw egg. The egg denatures (to illustrate the effect of not wearing goggles). This fall, I intend to use this demonstration to my science teachers, then follow it with an egg in a bowl that is covered by goggles to show what goggles prevent.

We did not inherit the Earth from our ancestors. We borrowed it from our children.
Many years ago I saw a video on eye protection that clearly demonstrated the protective ability of various types of goggles, glasses, face shields etc by splattering mannequin heads with paint balloons (or some such thing). It demonstrated the effectiveness of each type of eye protection.
Anyway, has anybody seen that video or similar video and if so, where can it be found? I thought about producing my own, but thought “why re-invent the wheel”.

I just learned about two new videos from the University of California, San Diego (again!). The first is a great lesson learned video from a researcher who was burned when trifluoroacetic acid ran down her arm:
The second is more of a PSA-style video about eye protection:
I've added them to myvideos list. As always, let me know if there's a good video out there that I should include!
