Destination Imagination would like to congratulate CEO, Dr. Chuck Cadle, on being awarded as one of SmartCEO’s New Jersey Future 50 Winners. The Future 50 Awards program recognizes 50 of the region’s fastest growing, mid-sized companies. The companies represent the future of the region’s economy and embody the entrepreneurial spirit critical for leadership and success.
Industry partnerships have been a key factor in DI’s growth. “The partnerships, such as with NASA, 3M, Project Management Institute, Oracle Academy and the Philadelphia Life Sciences Collaborative, have enabled us to connect students with real-world opportunities,” says Cadle. In addition, DI now offers students opportunities for project-based learning. “This program change has been well received by the educational community as a complement to in-school curriculum,” says Cadle. Going forward, DI’s goal is to help educators connect with industry needs so they can engage and inspire the future workforce.
Hear why Cadle is so passionate about the Destination Imagination program and what students learn by participating each year.
