Newton Destination Imagination Creativity Day, on May 4, will offer parents and kids a preview of the Destination Imagination program — a volunteer-run STEAM program for Grades K-12 (see video). Participants will work in teams to solve STEAM-based challenges in structural engineering, science, math, performance, and improv. The event will take place at Memorial Spaulding School (250 Brookline Street), and the cost is $5 person. Attendees under Grade 9 must be accompanied by an adult. Register now for either the 9AM-11:30AM session or the 11:30AM-1:30PM session.
In the school-year Destination Imagination, teams of 2-7 students form in September (by Grades: K-2, 3-5, 6-9, and 9-12) to address various design challenges throughout the year in preparation for regional tournaments in the early spring and potentially state and global competitions in May. Over the years, over 350 Newton students have participated, and last year a Newton team went to the Global Finals!
