The final day before the Destination Imagination Tournament is always the busiest. Fortunately, the kids were off school today and I could take a day off to provide logistical support.
Since Destination Imagination is such a wonderful international creative, problem solving competition, it is worth mentioning a bit about it.
And no better way to explain it than from the Wikipedia page:
“Destination ImagiNation Inc. or DI is a creative problem solving organization for youth and adults. Destination ImagiNation’s educational goals are to foster creative and critical thinking, to develop teamwork, collaboration and leadership skills, and to nurture research and inquiry skills involving both creative exploration and attention to detail. The program is open to students from elementary school through college. Teams of up to seven members compete in various challenges that require complex thinking, problem solving, teamwork and creativity.”
Watching my son in his third year of DI, I’m impressed with how much he’s grown.
It’s an amazing program.
