St. Monica Destination ImagiNation teams built a model of the inner ear with a machine to drain the tubes, created a YouTube channel to spread awareness of effects of water pollution, engineered a six-ounce structure that held 30+ pounds of weight, and used a life-size pop-up book to stage a Circus dream.
They also dramatized their projects in performances at the Dallas Regional Tournament on February 2nd. Teams from DISD and Dallas private schools competed in the largest regional tournament in the state.
