On Saturday, April 9th, 2016, Palmer’s Grade 9 Destination Imagination (DI) team competed at the BC DI provincial finals tournament, which was held at Kwantlen Park Secondary School in Surrey.
The team’s challenge was to create and present a “whodunit?” mystery story set on Earth in a time period before 1990, complete with sets, props and costuming. The mystery story had to include three suspect characters and a technical clue of the team’s design that helped to solve the mystery. In addition, the team had to solve an instant challenge problem on-site for which they had no prior knowledge.
Competing in a division against teams from Grades 9 to 12, Palmer’s Grade 9’s came in 4th, just missing out on a 3rd place trophy by 5 points, or the equivalent of one-and-a-half percent in scoring. Kudos to the team for their terrific presentation, and to student coaches Jana C. and Maggie Y. for their hard work and assistance.
Team members: Zakiya A., Carolyn G., Angela M., Leo T. & Crystal W.
