Two Destination Imagination teams represented Newton at the Global Finals in Kansas City, MO two weeks ago, and both teams did very well among teams from 15 nations around the world. At the elementary level, the Newton Noodle Nibblers placed 6th out of 60, and at the high-school level, team tiny.cc/2rb22y (that’s the team’s clever name, and not a link to its website!) placed 12th out of 60. Both teams competed in the Medical Mystery (Scientific) challenge, in which they:
- Researched the human body and medical conditions that affect the human body,
- Created and presented a story about a medical mystery that affects a human character,
- Designed and built a representation that shows the medical mystery and at least one symptom, and
- Presented an action or scene that is shown from two or more perspectives at the same time.
