UW-Green Bay is hosting the Destination Imagination (DI) Wisconsin State Tournament on Saturday, April 13 of this year. (Volunteers are needed. See below) DI is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. Its purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, DI offers seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning and Early Learning. Each Challenge is open-ended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Academic tournaments take place around the world where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers. Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge. In working to solve the Challenges, teams learn 21st century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage) to build on their unique strengths. UW-Green Bay will be hosting the state tournament and organizers expect around 7,000 visitors on that Saturday (this includes kids K-12 and their families). You can learn more about DI here: www.wisconsindi.org.
With 7,000 visitors in one day, please consider volunteering to help them all gain a great experience and to feel welcome to our beautiful campus. Your help is needed to provide a top- notch event. This is a great opportunity to expose the Green Bay campus to many residents of Wisconsin who might be seeing the campus for the first time and especially to potential future students and their families. As a volunteer, you will be provided a staff t-shirt and a lunch ticket. Please sign-up for a volunteer shift here.
