NGCP and Design Squad Global Webinar: Engaging Kids in Hands-on Engineering

March 02, 2017 2:00PM
Session
National Girls Collaborative Project

In this webinar, participants will learn how Design Squad Global (DSG) 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.

Since October 2016, over 200 clubs in 18 countries have participated in the global experience. This webinar will detail how to bring DSG Clubs to your community, and the support and resources available from DSG and the National Girls Collaborative.
