Seismic Shake-Up

Design a structure that’s sturdy enough to survive an earthquake’s vibrations.

Design Squad Global empowers middle school kids to solve real-world problems and understand the impact of engineering in a global context. Refreshed weekly with challenges, videos, and activities, the website is one of the only places on the web where kids can share their engineering ideas with other kids. At Design Squad Global’s online hub, kids can share their engineering ideas and sketches with other kids, play games (like the flood prevention simulation “Don’t Flood the Fidgits!”), and take on global challenges (inventing a way to use less water). Fun videos feature kid engineers and hosts/role models Deysi Melgar (future aerospace engineer and professional salsa dancer) and Nate Ball (engineer, pole vaulter, and beat boxer), who draw on their experiences to dispel stereotypes about engineering and inspire kids to explore engineering.
