What is Destination Imagination? “The Destination Imagination program is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process.” https://www. destinationimagination.org/
The team developed a skit for the scientific challenge. The team had to research scientific principles, create amusement park like attractions to demonstrate 3 different scientific principles (they chose Fun House attractions that demonstrated oscillation, Newton's Laws of Motion and Optics) and present a 8 minute story set in an "Unusual Location" (they chose the brain) and show how those attractions impact the location. They created all the scenery and sound effects to give representation of the Unusual Location. The team did all the work. They learned how to use power tools, simple wiring techniques and a lot about the challenges of working as part of a team. They created their own costumes and wrote an original song as part of the story.
This has been an amazing learning experience for the girls, not only with academics but learning to work collaboratively while problem solving issues without adult intervention. The STEM fields are largely dominated by males and these amazing girls have broken those gender stereotypes by excelling in this competition.
