Wolfe Street Academy - Park School of Baltimore Team Wins Regional Destination Imagination Tournament

A team of students from Wolfe Street Academy and Park School of Baltimore won first place in yesterday's Maryland Destination Imagination North Central Region Tournament at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology.

Park School and Wolfe Street Academy have undertaken a partnership to jointly participate in the Destination Imagination, a program that encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts and service learning.

The team,  led by Park School Spanish Teacher Silvia Patterson, is comprised of three Wolfe Street students - Lucia Given, Edwin Rivera and Makayla Moore - and three Park students. The students will compete in the State Tournament in April. The top placing teams at States advance to the Global Finals in May at the University of Tennessee

The goal of the Wolfe Street Academy - Park School partnership is to undertake a challenging task together that allows students from different backgrounds and experiences to get to know each other and to learn to appreciate each other’s talents and abilities to contribute.

We would like to congratulate the students on their hard work and thank Ms. Patterson for leading the team.
