Here's where you'll find everything you need to know about the Design Squad program and Web site. Plus you can find tons of fun engineering activities you can do at home, in the classroom or with any group of kids. Use the links below to explore these areas:

Design Squad is more than just a television series.

The Design Squad Web site extends the concepts presented on the show and provides viewers with an opportunity to explore content through the lens of "engineering as problem-solving using science, math, and technology."

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.
