Help Farmington Schools teams get to Destination Imagination

Two teams of Farmington Public Schools students will represent Michigan at the Destination Imagination (DI) Global Finals, held May 25-28 at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and they need help to make the trip.

Through DI, students from kindergarten to university-level learn and experience creative and critical thinking skills, teamwork, and problem solving related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education. During the after-school activity, they work in teams to solve mind-bending challenges and present their solutions at tournaments.

A GoFundMe page has been set up with funds directed to the fiscal sponsor, the Farmington/Farmington Hills Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, to support this project. The teams are also planning a local bowling fund raiser for early May.
