The Algoma School District is getting help for a special program. Destination Imagination in Algoma is receiving $159.12 from the Jandu Petroleum Pride Pumps program. Destination Imagination is a program where children get together in small groups and try to figure out a problem in the STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). Adults are not allowed to help students with the problem. Students compete at a state, national, and international levels. The Algoma DI has nine teams all with two to seven students. Robyn Harper is the DI Coordinator for the Algoma School District and she says those nine teams are prepping for the Regional Tournament in Sturgeon Bay on March 2nd. Harper would like to use the Pride Pump donation to fund a group’s trip to the international DI tournament this year.
Harper added every student can learn how to develop skills and problem solving with other people that help them prepare for their lives past school and careers.
