Destination Imagination

It is time to sign-up for a DI 2017-2018 team!!!

What is Destination Imagination?

DI is an international educational program that gives student teams the opportunity to solve open-ended challenges using CREATIVITY while teaching them about teamwork, positive thinking, project management and so much more!

Last year, ELES sent 7 teams to Regionals, 2 teams to State and 1 team to Globals!

Join us at an informational meeting on Wednesday, 11/1/17, at 6:30 PM in the ELES library.
