Engineering Contest: PBS Asks Students to Build Big

Design Squad Nation, an educational TV show produced by PBS to support middle school STEM education, particularly engineering, is asking American students to "Build Big."  In the DSN Build Big contest, students are encouraged to create teams, take one of the engineering projects features on the Design Squad Nation website, build a giant version of it, and submit a YouTube video on that creation.  The winning project, which must be submitted by August 1, 2011, will win a Flip Camera and will be featured on the DSN website.  Full contest details can be found here.

For an example of the kind of project they have in mind, watch the following video:

Even if you don't win, it looks like a fun challenge--to build a supersized engineering project and make an effective YouTube video about it (maximum length of 5 minutes).
