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.   


What is a Mesmer tube you ask?  Find out about gas, currents and voltage here.
 
Don't care much about Mesmer tubes?  I bet you like to play with your food then.  Who doesn't?  Check out the Noisy Jelly game/instrument/design project all-in-one and start playing with your food!

AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.
