Area students take part in Destination Imagination tournament

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Area students were at Youngstown State University on Saturday preparing for the regional Destination Imagination tournament.

Destination Imagination gives students the chance to solve open ended challenges and present their solutions as part of a friendly competition.

The challenges encourage students to have fun while incorporating what they've learned in the arts as well as science, technology, engineering and math.

Kids taking part also learned about patience and collaborative problem solving. "They're problem solving, they're using their creativity, they are building props and scenery, they are looking at technical elements of the challenge that they have to solve as well. It is all about collaborating with each other and coming up with a solution they can present to a panel of appraisers," said Cindy Baer, Regional Director of Destination Imagination.

Students from public and private schools in Mahoning and Trumbull counties took part. The winning teams will move on to the state competition held in April.
