Mid-Cities Creativity encourages team members to try new and different ideas, to explore different skills, to think outside the box – or to convert the box into something else entirely. DestiNation Imagination offers six different types of Challenges, which provide opportunities to explore a variety of skills and scenarios.
In order to encourage team members to dare to explore, Mid-Cities has established the “Magellan” award, to recognize those kids who, over the years, have completed solutions to Challenges in each of the six categories. Named after Ferdinand Magellan, the first person to circumnavigate the globe, it reflects the continued striving to reach the stars – and even beyond to the galaxies of the Magellanic Clouds. We would like to recognize these stellar Team Members at the Mid-Cities Creativity Regional Tournament.
- Challenge A - Technical (Obstacles, Of Course, DestiNations in Time, Change in DIrection, It’s Your Move )
- Challenge B - Scientific– Theatrical / Technical or Science (Hit or Myth!, The Plot and the Pendulum, ViDIo Adventure, StranDId, If Music be the Food of Life…, etc.)
- Challenge C - Theatrical (DI've Got a Secret, Cartoon DIimensions, Theater smARTS, On Holiday, Shakespeare, etc.)
