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.

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. Parents’ Choice serves as a trusted and independent source for educators and librarians, journalists, as well as families searching for quality children’s media and toys.
