Destination Imagination

Interested in a fun, innovative, team-building experience?

Destination Imagination teams are beginning to form for the winter/spring DI season. This 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. Teams may showcase their solutions at the local tournament on Saturday, March 7, 2020 in Circleville, OH. If you are interested in learning more about DI, check out this site:https://www.destinationimagination.org/.
