Congratulations to all of our 2022 ImagineXperience teams who showed the world how creative, innovative, and extraordinary you can be when you stretch the limits of your imagination and collaborate with others to bring your ideas to life. You all truly made amazing happen. We would also like to thank all of our Team Managers, parents, and our ImagineXperience sponsor, Lumen Technologies, for helping to inspire and empower more students through the world of STEM and preparing them for the future of work.
For this year’s ImagineXperience Challenge, teams had to research different historical landmarks and statues worldwide and create an original story in which their chosen statue comes to life. They also had to learn and use different forms of technology (e.g., artificial intelligence, coding, robotics) to design and create a device that helps their statue character attempt to achieve a goal. Teams then presented their stories in the style of a docudrama video. They received feedback from subject matter experts at Lumen to help students grow their confidence and interest in pursuing STEM careers.
Of the 58 teams who participated in the spring 2022 imagineXperience program, one team from each level (elementary, middle and secondary) was selected to receive the Make Amazing Happen Award, which is given to teams whose solutions exemplify Lumen’s core purpose of furthering human progress through technology. Those teams are:
The Wallingford Boys & Girls Club of King County in Seattle, Washington
Team Rehnuma Titans from Pakistan
Team IXP-22-082 from South Africa
