An educational program to teach students workplace skills is planned for 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, at the Greenbrier High School Commons Area, located at 72 Green Valley Drive.
Officials hope to see about 15 teams compete in this year’s Destination Imagination Awareness meeting. The event is for any school in the area, not just Greenbrier. Meetings are held statewide.
The Destination Imagination Awareness meeting is meant to develop a cross-discipline approach to critical and creative thinking to help prepare students for tomorrow’s jobs, according to a news release. The program is for students from kindergarten through university level. The teams are split into divisions according to grade levels.
Student teams will solve challenges and present their solutions at tournaments.
“In working to solve our challenges, teams learn life skills like time management, collaboration, conflict resolution and creative and critical thinking,” according to the release.
Destination Imagination, Inc., is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging “diverse approaches in applying 21st Century skills and creativity,” according to the group’s website. For more information, visit DestinationImagination.org, or ArkansasDI.org.
