Nine teams of students from Frisco ISD schools will advance to compete in the Destination Imagination Global Finals May 24-27 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The competition is the largest celebration of creativity in the world and the culminating event of every Destination Imagination season.
Destination Imagination is a parent-led educational program in which student teams solve open-ended challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. The challenges require students to apply science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, in addition to their talents in improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication, innovation, teamwork, community service and social entrepreneurship.
Student teams must advance past regional and state tournaments to qualify for Globals.
