Design Squad, PBS' ground-breaking engineering reality show, teaches kids about teamwork, the design process, and creativity--skills that all future innovators need. Originally designed for middle school students, Design Squad has made its way to the college engineering classroom. Meet with your colleagues and learn how they are using Design Squad to help undergraduate engineering students work better in collaborative group project settings, and to increase retention. Purdue University professor Senay Purzer will discuss her use of Design Squad episodes to build students' team problem-solving and design skills, and Elon University professor Sirena Hargrove-Leak will explain how students; outreach to local elementary school students using Design Squad's hands-on engineering activities has addressed issues relating to retention in her freshman engineering course and increased the elementary students' awareness of engineering.
