Adam and Judy's Visit

Today Judy and Adam came to our school. They work with the Design Squad Nation, television show on PBS and a website.

Adam and Judy work together to find children who have dreams. These are kids with a dream to create or build something, and Adam and Judy help them make their dream a reality. Once they worked with two kids from New York who wanted to be fashion designers. They also built a playground for Nicaraguan children and a robotic cake.

The crew on Design Squad Nation comes up with the ideas, while Judy and Adam build them. Judy came to this job after her profile was published on a website highlighting female engineers. Adam found the job when Judy asked him if he was interested in the show. They met each other three years ago.

The hardest episode for them was the one where they had to make the dress because they didn't have much time. If you want to be an engineer you need to study math and science. Sometimes, these subjects can be difficult and it may tough to see why they matter. But, as Judy and Adam, explained, they can also be a lot of fun while making a big difference in the world.
