Destination Imagination is a foundation promoting creativity, imagination, and innovation rooted by
STEM strategies. Almost 30 countries are affiliated with it including Pakistan, who organize national tournaments in their respective countries. The winners then qualify for the regional tournament and ultimately in Global Finals.

In January 2023, the National Tournament for Destination Imagination held at Invotech 2023,
Sir Syed University Karachi. The technical piece-by-piece puzzle challenge for the elementary level has been won by a team of 7 kids aged 6-11 years.

Representing Pakistan, this team of young learners then proceeded to the regional tournament held
in March at Space and Rocketry Academy, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This team has won in
their respective category and scored the highest in overall challenges. In the puzzle solution round,
they made a hydraulic arm attached to a toy car that can hold the pieces and can join them
together.

There is no wonder that Pakistan is full of emerging, aspiring youngsters who are not only talented but are striving to achieve more in their fields.

The winning team is now heading to GLOBAL FINALS which is going to be held in May 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, and is super motivated to bring the title to their homeland. The parents of these kids talked to Scientia Pakistan and showed their gratitude that by supporting these young talents, Pakistan can surely have its future secured. It was a great achievement for our kids to explore about space, and rockets and learn more about the space exploration. 

There is no wonder that Pakistan is full of emerging, aspiring youngsters who are not only talented but are striving to achieve more in their fields.
