"Design Squad" is a series where kids can learn about engineering. Viewers see "Design Squad" teams take raw materials and with very little adult intervention, transform them into workable solutions. The series presents kids using technology (such as computers, electronics, and machine tools) to do a wide range of activities that have a scale and complexity that will excite the viewing audience and motivate them to do these activities on their own. Engineers and educators have partnered with Design Squad to help support kids as they try out the ideas first-hand. These real-world experiences give kids a stronger understanding of engineering, equip them with science and math skills, and ultimately lay the foundation they need to participate in engineering activities later in life. The Design Squad web site offers activities and resources for teachers and students.
