Zoe, Meara, and Kyleigh won first place in the instant challenge and second place in the technical challenge for middle schools at the New York State Tournament of Destination Imagination. Now on to the Global Finals, which will include students from around the world! Only two middle school teams from New York State in the Technical category get to go to the Finals, so this is an amazing accomplishment!
Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams solve open-ended Challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. In working to solve the Challenges, the teams learn important life skills like time management, collaboration, conflict resolution, and creative and critical thinking. The program encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus, and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts, and service learning. We participated in the Technology (STEM) competition.
It's so important for girls to be involved with and have opportunities to be involved with STEM . Please help us help our kids get to Tennessee for this once in a lifetime opportunity. We have to make the committment in early May, so please help us by donating now! Thanks!!!
