Destination Imagination

Try DI!
Potential Destination Imagination team members -- and those still curious about DI -- should attend the first two team member training sessions Wednesday, Sept. 30 and Thursday, Oct. 1 from 6:30-7:30 in the Delta Center Elementary gym.

On Wednesday, students will explore the properties of materials and how to use them in new and creative ways. Thursday night focuses on storytelling, focusing on ensuring a story has a clear beginning, middle and end.

Team forming is Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at Delta Center.

The Grand Ledge Destination Imagination (DI) program is seeking students who enjoy being creative, technical, artistic and/or innovative.

DI is a STEM-based extracurricular activity that promotes creativity and teamwork for students in grades 3 and up. Early learning opportunities are also available for K-2 students.

Each year, teams of three to seven students pick a challenge to tackle, work on it at weekly practices, try their hand at instant challenges and then showcase their teamwork and solutions at a regional tournament. Challenges are in the technical, scientific, fine arts, improvisational, structural and service learning categories. Grand Ledge Clever Comets teams have a history of success, with teams typically qualifying for the state tournament. Several teams from Grand Ledge have qualified for the Global Finals tournament.

Interested parents and students from any Grand Ledge school should attend an informational meeting:

·       Tue. Sept. 22, 7-8 p.m., Beagle Elementary Media Room

·       Wed. Sept. 23. 6:30-7:30 p.m., Delta Center Elementary Media Room
