*This is our teams FIRST time participating in Destination Imagination!
*The team competed in the Scientific Challenge, which was called Unlikely Attraction. They had to design an amusement park-type attraction that operated in an unlikely location, and had to have an effect on that location. The team designed and built real spinning teacups that could actually be ridden! Then they wrote a creative story script that incorporated their teacups, the unlikely location, and the attraction's effect on the unlikely location.
*At Global Finals, our team will have the chance to compete against teams from all across the United States, as well as from 20+ other countries! In addition, during the 4 day event, the team will have the chance to participate in STEAM activities, will have the opportunity to meet children from around the world, and will be able to participate in educational, social, and recreational offerings. It is a bit like a STEAM Olympics!
What is Destination Imagination?
Destination Imagination (DI) is a program that promotes creative thinking and teamwork in order to help students be able to solve problems in real life. The mission of DI, according to its website, is to "teach students the creative process and empower them with the skills needed to succeed in an ever-changing world." Students who participate in DI become better at creative and critical thinking, collaboration, and idea generation. These are skills that are important to colleges, and are critical for businesses and entrepreneurs. Many DI alumni go on to be leaders in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Performing Arts, and in serving others.
