MISD Teams All Place at 2022 DI Global Finals

Midlothian, TX —On the weekend of May 21, six teams from Midlothian ISD competed in the Global Finals Destination Imagination tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. After months of preparation, over 450 student teams from all over the United States and at least five other countries presented their creative solutions to a number of STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) challenges. Our Midlothian ISD students impressed the judges with their teamwork, problem-solving, and creative solutions. Each of our teams placed in their respective categories as the top ten in the world, and we had one team earn first place!

Destination Imagination is an international, project-based educational program that encourages innovation, teamwork and creative problem-solving. Students chose one of seven different open-ended DI challenges and worked together in teams to plan, create and present their solutions to the appraisers.
