design-squadLooking for something to do this summer? PBS Kids is sponsoring a Trash to Treasure Contest for ages 5–19. Entries are accepted online from April 5 to September 5, 2010. The idea is to: “Recycle, reuse, and re-engineer everyday materials into an out-of-the box invention.”  Download the contest flyer and read the Official Rules to see if you are interested. Three contestants will be chosen to travel to Boston to appear on the Design Squad show.

Even if you don’t want to participate, take a look at the Parents and Educators section for information and activities that you might find useful.
