Looking for hands-on, impactful, fun engineering resources? Design Squad is back with two new programs designed for kids ages 8-14 in out-of-school time programs and available free on PBS Learning Media: Design Squad Maker and Design Squad Latinx (coming Aug. 15). These new programs aim to reach youth who have been historically underserved or unable to access engineering programs and activities.
Design Squad Maker was developed by GBH Education in collaboration with the New York Hall of Science and has resources for makerspaces, caregivers and kids. The program intentionally developed a wrap-around collection of resources to give kids access to engineering experiences across different settings and times. Design Squad Latinx is a bilingual program that employs a strengths-based approach to engineering activities. This program embraced a highly iterative development process and was created for and in collaboration with Latinx communities.
The webinar will take place Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. ET. The session also will be recorded, and a certificate is available for those who attend the livestream and complete a brief survey.
