Beverly HS Destination Imagination
Most of us have been involved in this program since elementary and middle school. We are all high school seniors now and consider this a crowning achievement to be able to represent our State in this tournament.
Destination Imagination (DI) http://www.destinationimagination.org/is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause driven organization whose purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, the program offers seven new standards based challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge enables teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation without adults helping. The process is all student driven.
Please help us realize our dream since we were in Elementary School and help fund our trip. Any little bit helps.
