As the Affiliate Director for Destination Imagination in Manitoba I invite you to find out more about this incredible learning opportunity.
Destination Imagination is a challenge program that inspires a global community of learners to utilize diverse approaches in applying 21st century skills and creativity.
Each year in August, Destination Imagination, issues a new challenge in each of the the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Fine Arts, Improvisation, and Social Outreach. Teams of up to 7 students form to solve a challenge and they work together over the coming months to create the best solution they can. At tournament time their solutions are appraised. In doing these challenges students learn to collaborate together, not only solving the set challenge, but also the myriad of problems that arise along the way. Students learn to communicate with one another and others in a productive, effective manner. They develop many technical skills, learn to look at challenges from many perspectives and learn how to think creatively and critically about the obstacles they encounter and potential solutions.
Check out my blog post entitled Celebration of Creation for further details.
