Osseo Area Schools’ "DIdeas Keep On Comin" team took first place at the State Destination Imagination tournament on April 9. The team will advance to Destination Imagination's Global Finals May 25-28 at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The team will compete in the secondary level Fine Arts challenge, one of seven, open-ended challenges that require students to apply science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, in addition to their talents in improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication, innovation, teamwork, community service and social entrepreneurship.
Destination Imagination is a project-based learning opportunity blending STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education with the arts and social entrepreneurship. The academic challenges are designed to teach kids how to think, not what to think, and then present their solutions at regional and state tournaments.
