Design Squad Nation 

Like to make stuff, figure out how stuff works … maybe Mom or Dad is an engineer, and you need to be smarter than they are?  "DesignSquadNation" has you covered.  Help Nate solve his cat feeding dilemma and other real world problems - the current question at my house involves maximizing your biking speed (of course…8-year-old boy + bike = daredevil). Still cringing over hands vs. no hands and feet on handlebars.
