Destination Imagination
Tuesday, October 10, 2017 12:55 PM

Destination Imagination is a team-based, STEAM focused activity. Student-led teams of four to seven students, along with an adult Team Manager, solve one of a set of open-ended challenges. All challenges involve writing a creative skit and engineering challenge-specific elements. Teams present their solutions at a spring competition. Previous Burroughs teams have gone on to participate in Regional and State competitions. Students learn research skills, persistence, collaborative problem-solving, and engineering design. 
While current teams are full, new teams may be formed if we have additional adult participation. Each team needs one to two adults who can meet with the team at Burroughs for about an hour, once a week. Adults manage the team, but do not participate in solving the challenge; they provide resources and keep the team focused. Materials provided from Destination Imagination give a good framework for guiding students through the process.
