Design Squad Global Inventing Green: Engage Kids in Hands-on Engineering around Sustainability - Thursday, January 10, 2019 @ Noon
This webinar will detail how to bring Design Squad Global (DSG) Clubs to your community, and the support and the new resources available in order to help it successufl!
Design Squad Global has a brand-new club guide! The new "Inventing Green" guide gets kids thinking about engineering and environmental sustainability. The guide challenges Design Squad Global Clubs to think about how to solve environmental problems with engineering, as well as how to create new inventions using a sustainability mindset. The "Inventing Green" guide will follow a similar format to the original club guide. Club leaders can still choose between the 6-week or 12-week guide. To accompany the new guide, we will have a new self-paced educator training.
Design Squad Global Clubs are connecting kids ages 10 to 13 in out-of-school-time programs around the world! In DSG Clubs, kids explore engineering through fun-packed, high-energy, hands-on activities that tackle real-world issues and they do so by working alongside a DSG club from another country. In the process of sharing their ideas and exchanging feedback with their partner club, children develop “global competency”—the ability to communicate and collaborate with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives.
The New Mexico Out-of-School Time Network (NMOST) brings together policymakers, educators, childcare providers, youth development workers, and other stakeholders interested in ensuring positive youth development opportunities and outcomes through out-of-school time programs.
