On March 16, students from Hampstead Academy participated in a tournament called Destination Imagination (DI). After months of preparation, the student team from HA presented their creative solutions to a number of mind-bending STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) challenges. In the Monster Effects Challenge, students designed a structure that could hold over 250 pounds without breaking.
Destination Imagination is an international, project-based educational program that encourages innovation, teamwork and creative problem-solving. Students choose one of seven different open-ended DI challenges and work together in teams to plan, create and present their solution.
The Hampstead Academy team have advanced to the State Finals on March 30 in Nashua, NH. Top placing teams from this round will advance to the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Kansas City, where they will compete with the best teams from around the world.
