Destination Imagination is a project-based learning program designed to complement K-12 education. Annually, we offer seven new academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts, service learning, and early learning. In solving a challenge, students learn the creative process from imagination to innovation and the skills needed to thrive in school, their careers and beyond.


West Avenue Elementary students Carmen Gamero, Yadhira Salinas, Anthony Sanchez, Tiara Hill, Marc Gomez, Danay Perez and Vianey Ramos ( L to R) celebrate their win over 200 other campuses in the Heart of Texas Region Destination Imagination competition. They will now compete in the state tournament April 8, 2017, in Lubbock, Tx.
