A guide to creating Design Squad clubs at schools; educators run the club and collaborate with international partners. In Design Squad Global (DSG) clubs, kids explore engineering and invention through fun-packed, high-energy, hands-on activities, such as designing and building an emergency shelter or a wind power station. Through DSG, students also get a unique opportunity: the chance to work alongside a partner club from another country. Partner clubs share their experiences by exchanging design ideas, photos, and videos. Along the way, they develop their global competence by learning more about each other’s cultures, communities, and lives.
