The Conroe Independent School District Board of Trustees gave special recognition to Destination Imagination Global Champions at Tuesday’s Board meeting. The team, comprised of seven 2015 graduates of the Academy of Science and Technology (AST), was awarded first place at the DI Global Finals that took place May 20-23 at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
DI is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering students’ curiosity, courage and creativity through open-ended STEM, fine arts and service learning challenges. The challenge selected by the team was called Feary Tales with the requirements to have a fairy tale type story with a character with a phobia, an optical illusion, and two types of art. Their pride and joy was the chameleon costume programmed with lights that changed as the animal’s moods changed which they said took over 100 hours of work to accomplish. click here for complete story
