The Destination Imagination team from Grapevine Middle School competed in the Mid-Cities Creativity Regional Tournament this past Saturday, February 22, that GCISD hosted at CHHS. The team has been working together since September on their challenge solution. They chose the Technical Challenge called “Dig In” for which they had to build equipment that could detect hidden objects in sixteen team-built containers,open the containers, remove the objects, transport them across a finish line, and incorporate a story (skit) that included an interesting character. They competed against nine other middle school teams and came in FIRST PLACE!! They now qualify for the StateTournament which will be held on April 11th and 12th in Pflugerville, TX (just north of Austin) where they will compete against teams from the fifteen other DI regions in Texas for a chanceto advance to the Global Finals in Knoxville, TN.
