Bedford Destination Imagination Teams Head to Kansas City

Submitted by Bedford Destination Imagination

Destination Imagination Global Finals is billed as “The World’s Largest Celebration of Creativity” – approximately  8000 students on 1100 teams from 15 countries, gathered in Kansas City, Missouri.  And next week, from May 22 to 25, two teams of Bedford students will be a part of it.

Destination Imagination (DI) is a project-based extracurricular that teaches kids the creative process, from concept to design to execution, with an emphasis on teamwork, creativity, and problem-solving. Everything about a team’s project is entirely original work of the students’ own hands and minds. Parents, teachers, and coaches can’t measure, cut or nail together wood for the team, sew costumes, or rebuild or improve something that falls apart.
