WASHINGTON IMAGINATION NETWORK
October 26, 2012

Washington Imagination Network is the state affiliate for Destination Imagination. I am a long time board member and parent of three kids who participated and thrived in the program. The DI program encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus, and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts, and service learning. My kids learned patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas. They loved the opportunity to collaborate with other kids while learning how to solve problems by themselves. I have watched many kids blossom with confidence after participating in this program. This program needs financial support because all funding from the State Legislature was cut in June 2011. We want to keep membership fees low in an effort to keep this wonderful program affordable for all kids in the state of Washington.
