Design Squad Nation reveal - 10-11-10
Design Squad Nation is a series developed by WGBH and PBS Kids. I got to tag along for the filming of the final episode of season one.

The shoot was at Continuum, an amazing industrial design think tank. Over the weekend build/shoot, three teens worked with professional designers Adam Vollmer and Judy Lee show co hosts and IDEO engineers and Rich Ciccarelli, continuum model shop wizard. The teens were selected from the entrants to the Trash To Treasure Design Challenge.

Starting from the teens' concept and prototypes, the staff developed build strategies and plans. Phone meetings with the youth in the weeks before the build helped get everything in place when the film crews arrived.
