Tune in for Design Squad, a new show premiering this week on PBS in selected markets... The show is geared toward promoting engineering and design principles for young students. With each episode, the show pits two teams against each other, and presents them with an engineering channel to solve independently, as teams.
The two teams, "Red Team" and "Blue Team" then pit their design against that of the other team in a competition. The members of the winning team then gain 100 points. For the next episode, the members of the teams are then scrambled to form new Red and Blue teams, and are then presented with another design challenge. Ultimately, as the design challenges conclude, the kid who emerges with the most points is granted a $10,000 college scholarship from Intel's foundation.
