Description

Join the PBSKIDS Design Squad Global team for an engaging, hands-on training session customized for out-of-school-time educators interested in incorporating engineering activities with a global perspective into youth programming for kids ages 10-13. At this free, half-day training, you will:

  • Learn about Design Squad Global Clubs here in Massachusetts and around the globe.
  • Gain new insights into youth empowerment through engineering.
  • Participate in two hands-on engineering challenges from the Design Squad Global Club Guide.
  • Expand your network by meeting new colleagues while enjoying a delicious lunch!
  • Receive a free Design Squad Global Activity Kit with activity supplies and resources to lead engineering challenges with youth.

The event features guest speaker Dr. Amon Millner, Assistant Professor of Computing and Innovation at Olin College of Engineering, discussing his work developing technology and community platforms designed to empower learners to make a difference in their neighborhoods.

WGBH will also moderate a Q&A with out-of-school youth leaders from across the globe who are running Design Squad GLobal Clubs. Everyone will walk away with practical strategies for engaging youth in easy-to-facilitate hands-on engineering activities.
