Empowering Young Creators with Design Squad Latinx

April 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Come and learn about Design Squad Latinx (DSL), an exciting bilingual (Spanish–English) initiative that engages kids ages 10–13 in the engineering design process through fun-packed, high-energy, hands-on challenges. Guest Nicki Sirianni (Education Outreach & Marketing Manager for GBH Education) will share how the program was developed with and for Latinx communities in the continental United States and Puerto Rico. See how DSL encourages kids to apply their own valuable existing funds of knowledge to solving meaningful problems and, in doing so, supports them in seeing themselves as the designers, engineers, and creators they are.

After the webinar, all registrants will receive:

  • Four bilingual engineering program modules with videos
  • Access to a one-hour, self-paced, online training on Design Squad Latinx
  • Professional development resources on funds of knowledge
