DESIGN SQUAD NATION New Series Premieres January 26 PBS
Posted by TwitC
Premiering Wednesday, January 26, 2011 (check local listings), the producers of the Peabody and Emmy Award-winning engineering and reality competition series Design Squad take their show on the road with a new spin-off series for tweens, teens, and family-viewing—Design Squad Nation. Over ten episodes, engineer co-hosts Judy Lee and Adam Vollmer travel across the country and around the world, working side-by-side with kids to turn their dreams into reality. Whether it is a red-carpet worthy gown for fashion designer Christian Siriano or a playground for kids in a rural village high in Nicaragua's northern mountains, Design Squad Nation shows that engineering isn't about hiding away in some lab; it's about being active in the world, taking risks, collaborating with interesting people, and using science, math, and technology to solve real problems.
