Please contact Wayne Kurtzman at wayne@nh-di.org for more information

Over 80 local student teams who have poured their creativity, collaboration and problem-solving skills to solve complex STEAM-based challenges get to show their skills as part of New Hampshire Destination Imagination’s regional competition this Saturday at Winnacunnet High School in Hampton, NH. These students are the first of almost 2,000 students who will compete at five New Hampshire regional competitions.

In the fall, teams select Challenges that are technical, scientific, structural, fine arts, improvisational, or service learning-based. They are open-ended and very complex to solve. Team members build STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), but also the high-demand communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills.
Each solution is solved solely by team members, and not adults or friends. From budget and planning to ideation to execution – it’s part of the student learning process.
Teams that advance from each Regional competition will advance to New Hampshire State Competition on Saturday, April 7 in Bedford. Their goal will be to advance to compete with teams from all 50 states and 15 over countries at Destination Imagination Global Finals.
