Season 3.

Dear all, Please a great opportunity below.

"Thought and content are inseparable, not antagonists but partners." Paul &
Elder, 2005



Design Squad is seeking candidates ages 18-19 who are passionate about
engineering and are excited to spend the months of June-August in Boston
(and traveling as well) tackling design challenges and competing for the
$10,000 prize.

Produced by WGBH-Boston for PBS, the program's goal is to get viewers
excited about engineering and the design process. Contestants tackle
engineering challenges for real world clients- such as creating cardboard
furniture projects for IKEA or designing a gravity bike (no pedals or
cranks!) for Extreme Game champion Tom Whalen.

Money for housing is provided.

Contestants are paid -- so not only is this a unique opportunity, it also
qualifies as a summer job!

We are seeking a diverse pool of young men and women -- we will ultimately
choose 3 guys and 3 gals.

Please urge any kid you know who is passionate  about engineering and
building things to apply.

A link to the application can be found at pbs.org/designsquad. Deadline is
Friday, April 11.

Thank you.

Thea Sahr
