Destination Imagination (DI) provides a hands-on system of learning that fosters creativity, courage, and curiosity and empowers learners with the skills needed to succeed in an ever-changing, technologically-savvy world.
The programs, called “Challenges,” are developed in conjunction with creativity collaborators, like National Geographic, NASA, and Partnership for 21st Century Learning. Bursting with creativity, collaboration, and fun, the Challenges blend STEM skills with the humanities to foster the creative spark that is crucial to innovation—no matter the field. Offering short-term and long-term Challenges, DI has opportunities to plug in at any level. The long-term ones take place over the course of a traditional school year, with teams presenting their results at one of the over 200 tournaments around the world—culminating in the Global Finals in Knoxville, Tennessee. Their shorter (usually 10 minutes or less) Instant Challenges can be used as practice for teams or tackled independently by individuals or small groups as stand-alone projects. Check out Destination Imagination to see everything—from Instant Challenges to Try DI to registration for next year’s Challenge program—that they have to offer!
