Two of St. Stephen’s Catholic School’s Destination Imagination teams each took second place at the state tournament in Denver to go on to the Global Finals, which will be held at the end of May in Knoxville, Tenn. The elementary team, “The Big Brained Angels,” made up of seven students from third through fifth grades, competed in a problem-solving challenge that required them to make a 4-minute movie trailer that had to have a plot where two characters from different cultures interacted. The team members also had to create an original soundtrack and a cinematic special effect that complemented the movie. The middle school team, calling themselves, “Caution … Thinking in Progress,” consists of six students in fifth through eighth grades. This team was required to create and present a theatrical performance that tells a story about the use of solar energy. Students researched about past and or current uses of solar energy and designed and created a solar prototype that demonstrated a new way to collect, capture and use solar energy. Students will need to raise more than $1,200 per team member by May 22 in order to go to Global Finals.
