I see safety issues as very relevant to both physics and K-12 students. Who decides on the final design of new features in playgrounds and or amusement parks? How much should we spend on repairing important infrastructures (bridges, tunnels, intersections) versus replacement? Who is liable and to what degree do the concepts of physics enter into the legal considerations? Who in the approval process is expected to know what level of physics? What are the ethical considerations in sending people to live for extended periods of time on the space station even if they volunteer to go?

A few ideas I had after reading your notes.
