The LISD Destination Imagination Teams were spotted plotting their skills, preparing to compete in their competition. Of course, this year, the DI competitions are virtual. Students had time to plan, and then they separated into different rooms with no teacher or help and Zoomed their competition! It was already hard enough, and not being together to feed off one another made it even harder. These dedicated students understand the importance that DI has in their education and they are the overachievers. The DI program gives LISD students invaluable 21st-century skills, creative outlets, and the confidence needed to succeed in school, their careers, and beyond. DI students participate in project-based challenges that are designed to build confidence and develop extraordinary creativity. They learn critical thinking, communication, and teamwork skills needed to be successful. DI focuses on learning and hands-on STEAM concepts. It teaches students how to think, not what to think, and energizes students to own all decisions, creations and results, motivates teamwork, and celebrates diversity. LISD has DI Teams from K through grade 12. We cannot wait to see how these virtual DI Teams fair and to see how far they go! Stay tuned!
