Delta Middle School's Destination Imagination team recently competed at the state finals in Denver and placed fifth in their challenge. At the regional competition in March they placed second and received the DaVinci Award for creativity.
The team, managed by DMS teacher Danielle Lopez, call themselves "The Greek Geeks." The challenge that they participated in was "The Solar Stage." The team used Greek mythological characters to present a problem-solving skit addressing issues with solar energy. With many lighting requirements to be met as well as other creative elements, the seven-member team even included information on how polar bear hair attracts solar rays that are then converted to heat.
Destination Imagination is a nationally recognized creative problem solving organization which many schools participate in each year. Colorado is one of the more active states to participate in this organization with thousands of students working for several months preparing for the regional, state and national (global) competitions.blog comments powered by Disqus
