Destination Imagination Teams Qualify for State Competition

Feb 28, 2013

Fourteen student teams from Frisco ISD schools advanced from Destination Imagination regional competition this past weekend.

Destination Imagination is an educational program in which student teams solve open-ended Challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. In working to solve the Challenges, teams learn important life skills like time management, collaboration, conflict resolution, and creative and critical thinking.

There are seven new Challenges to choose from each year. Each of the Challenges is developed by a team of educators and industry experts who target a particular area of curriculum and its related standards of content and performance. The areas of focus include: Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Structural and Service Learning. There is also a non-competitive Early Learning Challenge that allows participants to develop social and problem solving skills.

Up to seven students make up each team, under the direction of an adult Team Manager. Each season takes place from September through May. Depending on the Challenge, teams typically spend two to four months developing and practicing their Challenge solutions.

Regional winners advance to state competition in Katy, Texas on April 12-13. Congratulations to the following teams:
