It’s a chess game like no other and our Alamo team keeps getting the win! These elementary students took 1st at Regionals and now 1st at State to head back to the Global Finals for Destination Imagination.
The Alamo Destination Imagination (DI) team chose the Fine Arts CHallenge for DI this year. It’s called “Game On.” They had to select a real game and then do research on it and incorporate that research into their production. This team chose chess as their game and called themselves Pawndabears. They create a skit that presents a problem and solution, with two points of view, using the rules or characteristics of the game for their solution. They were challenged to create a “Game Gizmo” and a container that transforms. They also have to have a technical element that can be their Game Gizmo or container. It was a very creative skit that rhymed throughout the 6 minutes.
The team needs to raise several thousand dollars to fund their trip to Globals and will be scheduling fundraisers within the next few weeks.
