KQED EngineerThat! Media Challenge


In the spirit of Lights On Afterschool, KQED welcomes the afterschool community serving middle and high-school students to join in the EngineerThat! media challenge. From October 22 – January 8, KQED invites young people to identify engineering problems in their schools, homes, and communities and share their solutions via social media. Young people talk with people in their communities to discover problems that can be solved through engineering. They don’t actually have to build a prototype – but they do have to use their imagination and digital media tools to share their solutions. KQED will showcase the most compelling solutions (and the youth who came up with them!) on their website and a public media program.
