Design Squad Global is the latest iteration of Design Squad, a respected source of design/build projects that focus on the engineering design process. In this panel, formal and informal educators will discuss how they have implemented projects from our new Inventing Green guide, with sustainable projects that encourage youth to solve everyday issues in an environmentally-friendly way. We will also highlight the Design Squad Global Club opportunity, a location-based program that empowers youth aged 10-13 to explore engineering and cross-cultural connections through fun, hands-on activities. DSG Clubs are guided by Club Leaders and partner with a DSG Club from a different nation or state exchange engineering ideas and designs. These projects and clubs engage youth with STEM, sparking interest in STEM-related fields and in using the design/build process to solve community problems.
