Through a dynamic website and robust social media presence, DESIGN SQUAD engages kids ages 8 and older with creative STEM activities, fun videos, interactive games, and exciting contests. This PBS KIDS brand focuses on giving kids a stronger understanding of the design process, and emphasizing the connection between engineering and the things we all use in everyday life.

To increase recognition of public broadcasting as a valuable resource that informs, enlightens and enriches public life, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting developed the My Source initiative.
Through My Source, public broadcasting supporters are able to tell their own unique and personal stories about how public broadcasting serves as a source for information, entertainment and empowerment. Viewers, listeners, users and supporters will be able to share their stories online on this Web site and on station Web sites across the country. Public television and radio stations will also be gathering testimonials in their own communities.
Collectively, these stories illustrate the many ways in which public broadcasting contributes to a civil, diverse and participatory society.
Join WXEL in celebrating the essential role of public broadcasting in American society!
