Four Minnesota Teams Heading to Destination Imagination Global Competition

Four Minnesota Teams Heading to Destination Imagination Global Competition

(Minnesota) — April 19th, 2024 —   Four Minnesota teams of Destination Imagine students are heading to global finals.  Two teams from Rosemount, as well as one Osseo, and one from Minneapolis, have qualified for the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Kansas City, Missouri May 22-25.

Destination Imagination is a project-based, kid-driven program that teaches kids to be innovative problem solvers. Using STEAM, teams of students collaborate, think outside the box, and create unique solutions to one of seven different challenges in preparation for a fun, problem-solving competition.

They have the talent to earn a spot in the competition, but they need help bringing home the win. Each team has set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of getting enough to afford the competition fees and travel for the team.
