This past week I hosted a Google+ hangout on air with members of WGBH Boston’s “design squad nation.” The hangout featured easy-to-build projects ideal for birthday parties or regular weekend fun and included making an air cannon,a two-wheeled balloon car, and an indoor slingshot. Design Squad Nation is a PBS KIDS website that promotes the message: You are creative and can solve problems. You can make things that help people. You can dream big. On the site, kids can post real-life solutions to real-world problems and respond to challenges by sketching and building their own prototypes.
