Destination Imagination, 2018: Teams Forming Soon with Innovation and Fun to Follow

Submitted by Jennifer Cunningham for Bedford MADI

Does your child want to spend this winter working with friends to create something AWESOME??

Maybe designing an aircraft, creating a new game gizmo, or researching a medical mystery. How about an original musical; a super-strong, uncrushable tower; or an original improv skit? Bedford Destination Imagination is forming new teams for the upcoming season!

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, originality, and problem-solving. DI fosters students’ curiosity through open-ended academic challenges in the fields of science, engineering, technology, fine arts, and service learning. In working to solve DI Challenges, teams learn 21st-century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication) by using individual talents and interests to create something entirely new as a team.

Bedford is fortunate to provide free school bus transportation for all grades, and that is a preferred way for students of all ages to travel to school to save on gas and congestion in town and at the schools. Navigating the school bus will be of increasing benefit to them as they mature and become more self-sufficient.

Summer is an important time at The Food Project. On July 2, the organization welcomed 100 young people (most between the ages of 14 to 17) from diverse cultural, racial, economic, and geographic backgrounds to work on their urban and suburban farms in Boston, Beverly, Lincoln, Lynn, and Wenham. During the summer season, these youth work together to grow vegetables and to donate or distribute nearly 200,000 servings of produce to increase food access throughout eastern Massachusetts—all while developing important leadership, teamwork, and civic participation skills.
