Destination Imagination (DI) students from several districts in the area gathered at the Alice High School for Spectacular Saturday to brush up on their Instant Challenge skills.

The purpose of the DI Spectacular Saturday is to have teams prepare themselves for the challenges to come during regional competition.

DI is an educational program where students solve open-ended challenges with creativity, academic skills and team work in coordination with the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math curriculum taught to students.

The students performed instant challenges and received advise on how to work more effectively as a team. Students needed to find a solution to a specific problem using only the materials provided while putting on a five minute play.

Students are preparing for the upcoming regional tournament on Feb. 23 hosted in Corpus Christi.
