Destination Imagination (DI), a STEAM-based competition for K-12 students, is looking for volunteers to lead teams of students through dynamic, creative, problem-solving processes. Through the fall and winter, DI teams work together and learn to harness their strengths, with the eventual goal of presenting their unique solution to one of seven challenges at the Maine State Tournament at the Hutchinson Center in Belfast on March 11th (and, if they qualify, Global Finals in May). Our Cape Elizabeth School Department is looking for parents, caregivers, and educators who may be interested in starting a team, and creating new opportunities for social-emotional learning for their kids. Please reach out soon if you are interested! FMI: Please contact Sarah Gagne at firstname.lastname@example.org
