Summit Elementary Students Find Their Superpowers With Destination Imagination (DI)

From left to right, students in the picture are Benjamin Rexford, Ben Gragg, John Rubio, Bradley Seal, and Rachel Gunter.

Destination Imagination (DI) 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.
Summit Elementary sponsored a team of five students who participated in the program’s
Technical Challenge, titled Daring Escape. The team had to incorporate technical elements to overcome obstacles while adding a daring escape. All the components are sewn together in a short 8-minute production where students create everything from the story to the props! Ben Gragg (5th grade), John Rubio(5th grade), Rachel Gunter(5th Grade), Ben Rexford(4th grade), and Bradley Seal (4th grade) placed first, under the direction of their dedicated team manager and teacher Donna Frick, in the South Metro Regional Competition on February 26, 2022.
They will be proceeding to the State tournament on April 2, 2022.
