Quantitative reasoning, problem solving, risk taking, collaboration, presentations, and thinking on your feet are some of the important skills learned in the Program,” said Chuck Cadle, D.I. CEO.
More than 8,000 students representing more than 30 countries will participate in the 2012 Global Finals. This year’s competition will feature students participating in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), improv, theater and community service challenges.
