PBS Kids Design Squad Global (DSG) empowers middle school kids to solve real-world problems and understand the impact of engineering in a global context. Refreshed weekly with new content, the website is one of the only places on the web where kids can share their engineering ideas with other kids. At DSG’s online hub, kids can play games, take on global challenges, and watch fun videos featuring kid engineers and hosts Deysi (future aerospace engineer and professional salsa dancer) and Nate (engineer and beat boxer), who draw on their experiences to dispel stereotypes and inspire kids to explore engineering.
