Destination Imagination is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas and respect for the collaborative problem solving process.

Students had to qualify for the state tournament at the CCSD DI regional tournament, held March 19 at Grandview High School. It is the largest regional tournament in the state, involving more than 700 elementary, middle and high school students on 144 teams.
