New York Destination Imagination State Finals
4/13/2013 (Updated 10:08:02 PM)ENDICOTT -- Hundreds of students from all over the state put their creativity to the test Saturday.
Nearly 60 teams of elementary, middle, and high school students competed in the New York State Destination Imagination Affiliate Tournament at Union-Endicott High School. Teams presented their solutions to challenges they have worked on for months, such as propelling a vehicle without a remote control. The kids say they learned how to innovate and bring their ideas to life.
"I think we learned we have to be creative. We weren't the closest friends when we started, and we've all made so many new friends," said Isabel Steinberg of Blind Brook Middle School.
"We're pretty good at it, we know how to make things work," said Shannon Rogers of Putnam Valley High School.
The winners of each challenge will advance to the national competition at the University of Tennessee in May.
