Destination Imagination Creativity Day at Wooster Elementary School will be held again this year Saturday, Jan. 25. It will begin at 9 a.m. and run until 2 p.m. Robin Clark, assistant principal at Wooster and Gifted and Talented coordinator for Greenbrier Schools is coordinating this effort.

Many teams of students assemble for a fun day of problem solving from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students typically work in teams of up to seven, on six different challenges. There are no right or wrong answers to challenges — only opportunities to create solutions and sharpen their team skills. Their five minute timed presentations are appraised by the other groups in their room and the watchful eyes of a Destination Imagination University student leader and judges.

Many large corporations like Apple, Disney, Texas Instruments, 3M and Motorola help sponsor DI; but without the constant support of many parents and teachers in each community, it could not endure. Everyone can volunteer to help or sponsor a team. For more information or to get involved call 501-520-7337 or visit www.ArkansasDI.org

The DI Northern Region Tournament is Saturday, March 1 at Greenbrier High School from 8 a.m. until the awards ceremony around 3:30-4 p.m.
