Engineering professor in the Philippines asks students to create anti-cheating hats

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. A professor was amused by images she saw on social media. Students in Thailand wore paper hats with blinders to prevent cheating. So this engineering professor in the Philippines asked her students to make their own anti-cheating devices. Photos show the future engineers wearing all kinds of crazy gear. Some wore decorated boxes on their heads. Another put tubes over his eyes. Another just wore a motorcycle helmet. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
