Comox Teams Lead the Way Again

This past weekend four teams from the Comox Valley travelled to Knoxville, Tennessee with more than 1400 teams from around the world (42 states, 6 provinces, and 16 countries) to compete in the Global Finals for Destination Imagination.  Teams compete in different challenges that test their skills in creativity, critical thinking, innovation, communication, collaboration, and resilience.




A team of high school students from Ecole Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School in the Comox Valley will demonstrate their creativity and critical thinking by competing in China's national Destination Imagination championship tournament in Bejing, China in early December. Seven students from grades 10 – 12 will work as a team to solve an extreme challenge sponsored by National Geographic and then have their solution compared with those from other countries around the world. “It is a great honour to be asked to compete. We are very proud of our students. They really are a testament to the world class education available to them here.” said District Superintendent Sherry Elwood.

Destination Imagination overview

Destination ImagiNation, Inc. is an extraordinary non-profit organization that provides two educational programs for students to learn and experience creativity, teamwork and problem solving.  Destination ImagiNation, our core program, is an exhilarating after-school activity in which students work in teams to solve mind-bending Challenges and present their solutions at Tournaments.

Destination ImagiNation, Inc. began in the summer of 1999, when nearly 200 international volunteers united to create a global creative problem solving program that would provide students with an exciting, joyful and supportive experience. Less than a year later, more than 100,000 students had participated in the program.

The underpinnings of Destination ImagiNation’s work in creativity, teamwork and problem solving were developed in collaboration with the world-renowned Center for Creative Learning. Today, Destination ImagiNation has an extensive global network and a devoted staff to carry out its programs. It stands among the world’s most progressive institutions in creativity and innovation, and it seeks to revitalize the educational experience of students around the world.
