Destination Imagination Descends on UWSP This Weekend
For the City-Times
Creative students from schools across the state will gather at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point this weekend for the Wisconsin Destination Imagination Affiliate State Tournament.
The event will be held Saturday, April 12, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in various locations across campus. Throughout the tournament, Destination Imagination teams will use creativity, critical thinking and collaborative problem-solving to compete in seven, standards-based challenges with fine arts, service learning, improvisation, technical, structural and scientific themes. Each team must solve their challenge without assistance from an adult team leader.
Local students will compete in teams from McDill Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, Pacelli High School, St. Bronislava, St. Stephen’s, and St. Peter’s Middle School. Top-scoring teams in this tournament will advance to the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn., May 21-24.
In addition, a Creativity Expo will be held inside Berg Gym in the Health Enhancement Center on campus from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The expo will feature local organizations and exhibits in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and creative problem solving. The tournament and expo are open to the public.
