April 15, 2014JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Findley Oaks Elementary participated in the Georgia Destination Imagination Affiliate Tournament on March 15 at Duluth High School.
Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams solve open-ended challenges and present their solutions during the tournament to a panel of judges.
In working to solve a selected challenge, teams learn important life skills such as time management, collaboration, conflict resolution, as well as creative and critical thinking.
Findley Oaks Elementary sent six teams for their first year of participation.
The teams worked to solve their respective challenges for five months.
Findley Oaks sent three non-competitive Rising Stars teams comprised of kindergarten through second-grade students, two competitive Technical Challenge teams comprised of third- and fourth-grade students and one competitive Scientific Challenge team comprised of third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students.
