Congratulations to our Destination Imagination Team on their tremendous performance at Globals! The WHS Community is so proud of you! The Team (Willow Stoner, Elizabeth Owens, Smaranda Costiner, Liam Hilton, and Augustine Ros) placed 12th out of 52 teams in their category.
On May 23, Waldorf High School’s Destination Imagination (DI) team advanced to the Global DI competition in Knoxville, Tennessee, where they competed alongside 1,400 of the top-scoring DI teams from 45 U.S. states and 15 countries. More than 17,000 people attend the event each year. The Destination Imagination program, offered as an elective course at Waldorf High School, is an international, project-based educational program that encourages innovation, teamwork and creative problem solving. Students choose one of seven different open-ended DI challenges and work together in teams to plan, create and present their solution. DI 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. Students learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. At the beginning of the elective course, students choose a problem solving challenge, collaborate to develop a creative solution, and compete at a regional level with other high schools. Qualifying teams advance on to a state-wide competition, where they compete to represent Massachusetts at the Global competition.
