Destination Imagination starts up

The Andover Destination Imagination program is beginning our 2021 season. For more than decades this creative problem-solving program has showcased teams representing Andover schools who participate in regional, state and global competitions. Despite the challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, last year Andover formed 18 teams, 9 qualified to compete in Virtual Global Finals while adhering to safety guidelines and the high school team won 1st place. DI is an excellent program to supplement the academics encouraging creativity in these STEAM disciplines.
