Please click the link below for details about the Destination Imagination Parent Info Night being held on September 18th at Peter Woodbury School.

Destination Imagination is a fun academic program that teaches creativity, problem-solving, collaboration, critical thinking, and management skills through project-based Challenges. These are key skills that all businesses (and colleges) are looking for – the ability to identify challenges and solve them, while leveraging the talents on your team.

Designed to complement K-12 education, we offer seven new academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts, service learning, and early learning. In solving a challenge, students learn the creative process from imagination to innovation and the skills needed to thrive in school, their careers and beyond.
Teams can be made up of 2-7 members and must have an adult Team Manager i.e. - a parent or two.  We need volunteers and we will train you!
The 2017-18 Parent Info Night will be this coming Monday, September 18th in the Peter Woodbury School Library at 7pm.  For more info, check out Bedford DI on Facebook or contact our district cooordinator, Marie Russell at www.bedfordrocksdi@gmail.com.
