Destination ImagiNation (DI) is a community-based, school-friendly program that builds participants’ creativity, problem solving, and teamwork in enjoyable and meaningful ways. The goals of Destination ImagiNation are for participants to foster creative and critical thinking, develop teamwork, collaboration, and leadership skills, and encourage competence in, enthusiasm for, and commitment to real-life problem solving. Teams of 2-7 students work together over several months to address a main challenge – which may involve building, addressing a scientific question, designing creative artwork and props, improvising skits and other challenges, and presenting a skit at a regional competition on March 3, 2018. Students may compete in grade-specific levels from kindergarten through college.
The PTA pays for the initial registration fee. Teams are responsible for their own competition registration. Each team needs 1-2 parent team managers to guide their team through the process. Each year we have many Whittier teams participate… its an amazing learning process for the kids, and lots of fun at the Regional Event.
