Destination Imagination brings thousand of kids to Knoxville

Destination Imagination

They’re smart, a bit eccentric, they have a sense of humor and a few of them can sing. According to Ken Schwall, that pretty much describes the thousands of kids in Knoxville this week for Destination Imagination.

WBIR News

More than a thousand students from all over the world are visiting Knoxville this week.

Destination Imagination, a group dedicated to enriching the global community by providing opportunities for kids of all ages, is once again hosting its final competition at the University of Tennessee. This is the 12th year that Knoxville has hosted the group.

Destination Imagination KidsThe event kicks off on Wednesday with an opening ceremony at Thompson-Boling Arena, and continues through Saturday.

More than 14-hundred teams from 42 states and 16 countries qualified for the competition. The teams will compete in events designed to challenge them to come up with creative solutions, utilizing science, technology, engineering and math knowledge, as well as improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication innovation, teamwork and community service.

“America’s Got Talent” finalist David Garibaldi and “American Idol” contestant and DI alumna Rachel Hale will perform for the students at the opening ceremony. Garibaldi, a performance painter, will create a painting with his body movement (and brushes) to the music’s beat at the Welcome Center. Rachel Hale will sing the national anthem.

National Geographic Oceans Kit Wins Parents Choice Award

National Geographic Oceans

The National Geographic Laser Pegs Oceans Kit is a light-up construction set composed of clear, construction brick-like blocks that can be configured into 6 different, moveable and poseable, ocean creatures. The included instructions detail how to build a Manta Ray. Plans for four more fish (hammerhead shark, tiger shark, clownfish and a lantern fish) and one deep sea explorer vehicle can be downloaded from the Laser Pegs website. And because Laser Pegs are compatible with other construction toy bricks, the possibilities continue. This specific kit includes a total of 73 parts; 10 Laser Pegs, 62 construction parts and a triangle power base. While a bit advanced for the lower end of suggested age range to complete without help, one six year old tester worked with his mom to complete and illuminate the Manta Ray in about 30 minutes. And then they made popcorn and watched Finding Nemo.

PC-SealEstablished in 1978, Parents’ Choice Foundation is the nation’s oldest nonprofit consumer guide to quality children’s media. As a Parents’ Choice Award® winner, Laser Pegs is a member of a very select group. Fewer than 25% of the products receive any level of commendation.

Hours of Fun with the Trendy National Geographic Space Laser Pegs Set

Visit – Trendy Mom Reviews.com

This month, we are going to feature trendy toys and activities that help to make summer break more exciting. We are going to start with our favorite toy so far – the trendy National Geographic Space Laser Pegs Set! My son is going to attend a NASA Space Camp later this summer, so I knew that he would love this set.

We think that this set is one of the best toys for summer vacation because it is an extremely engaging set that can entertain for hours. It allows children to use their imaginations, practice following instructions, and learn about space. The designers of this set put a lot of thought into this product. There are 24 different models that children can build with the pieces. There are also infinite possibilities of designs that children can invent on their own.

AstronautActivityForPreschooler

Personally, my son jumped up and down when he saw the box. He couldn’t wait to tear the box open so that he could start building. The first thing that he created was the trendy astronaut. I was amazed how focused he was on following the instructions. I was also amazed at how quiet he was as he played for hours with this set. The 24 different designs will keep children busy for a very long time, so we feel like this toy is a really good deal considering how much our son plays with it. We also like the educational aspect of it because our son asks questions about the different models. The models inspired him to learn more about space.

The National Geographic Space Laser Pegs Set is first Trendy Toy Pick for Summer Vacation. It is educational and fun!
