Design Squad

DESIGN SQUAD, a series aimed at 9 to 12-year-olds, borrows from the reality competition format and intends to get its viewers excited about engineering. Two teams of high school students (ages 16-19) design, build and test whimsical machines and innovative products -- everything from a wireless light and dance show to an automatic pancake maker -- for real clients. Guided by two young engineer hosts, the teams are scored for their ability to think outside the box and meet (or surpass) the demands of the challenge at hand. In the final episode, the top two scorers battle for the grand prize: a $10,000 college scholarship.

There are no upcoming episodes of Design Squad.
