On Saturday, Feb. 23, 128 teams from Humble ISD, Klein ISD, Tomball ISD and Aldine ISD competed in the Regional Destination Imagination Tournament held at the Aldine Staff Development Center. This is the event known to inspire students to be creative problem solvers. Sara Ptomey, AISD executive director of curriculum and instruction, organized the regional event.
Teams, composed of anywhere from two to seven students, worked over the past few months on a challenge that required collaboration, problem solving and creativity. At the tournament, students presented their solution to a team of appraisers and competed in an instant challenge as well. Scores from the two challenges were combined to determine placement.
All first place teams will advance to the state event and some second place teams will be invited after all the regional tournament results are in from around the state. The state tournament is set for April 12 and 13 in Katy.
Advancing from Aldine ISD are Marcella Intermediate School and MacArthur High School. Sixth graders (pictured above, front row, l-r) Ali Musa, Mya Grant, Nani Cochran, Lesly Arana-Barreto, Chasity González, (back row, l-r) Jason Cruz, and Juan Olalde comprise the Marcella Intermediate team. Kendra Chandler serves as team manager. The team won in the In the Zone Challenge.
Ibán Ocampo, Stephanie Villanueva and Jésica Muñoz comprised the MacArthur High team. The team managers are Patricia Ego and Desiree Nwadinobi. The team won the In Disguise Challenge.
Congratulations to all the students and team managers on their first place wins!
