As is the case with most events and celebrations this year, the Destination Imagination Global Virtual Global finals was impacted by COVID-19. This year there was a virtual event, and the Sulphur Springs Middle School Technical team rose to the challenge.
The SSMS students finished fourth in their challenge at the Destination Imagination Virtual Globals finals did not require prior involvement or advancement
While 6 SSMS teams placed at the regional contest, with four advancing to state, because of COVID-19 the Destination Imagination Virtual Global Finals was open to all students, teams and families interested in being involved in creative, collaborative, and solving fun challenges that require out-of-the-box thinking. No prior involvement with DI or competition was required. Entrants were required to complete the registration form and fee, and participate in as many challenges in the Summer of Creativity DI event.
Teams were tasked with creating and performing a story about characters who work together to reach a goal. Teams also created and incorporate a work of art into the performance, using at least one video conferencing platform to perform their story.
