WESTFORD DESTINATION IMAGINATION TEAM MAKES IT TO THE TOP! This year 20 teams of elementary and middle school students participated in Destination Imagination (DI). Each team performed their creative, collaborative, STEM-oriented presentation at the Regional tournament last month, and they had a lot of fun doing it. Westford DI is particularly proud of the two teams who won first place in their regional event and one team went on to compete at the Massachusetts state level. The 6 DI Dolphins won first place at the States and has been invited to participate at Global Finals next month!
Please consider helping this Westford team, the 6 DI Dolphins, travel to the world's biggest celebration of creativity in Knoxville Tennessee.
