Thank you parents for coming to DI info session on 9/20!

WHAT:  Our 21st century learning programming is cross-curricular and complements K-12 education by fostering curiosity, courage and creativity.  All of our academic Challenges are designed to teach students the creative process - a system of learning that is at the root of all innovation and a child's ability to bring an idea to life.  All challenges are delivered as story-telling stage performance with costumes and props designed by students.

 

WHO:  Destination Imagination is open to all kindergarten through university level students worldwide. Students form teams of up to 7 members, select their preferred Challenge and work together to develop a solution to the Challenge. Each team has at least one Team Manager (often a parent or teacher) who helps keep the team on track, but does not assist or interfere with the team’s project.

 

WHY:  Our Challenges help bridge the gap between what students learn in school and the skills they will need to thrive in an ever-changing economy. Through the DI program, students improve in creative and critical thinking, explore their curiosity, build on their unique strengths, learn how to design and manage a project, and gain the skills needed for the 21st century workforce.

 

WHEN:  Each season takes place from September through May.  Depending on the Challenge, teams typically spend 2 to 4 months developing and practicing their Challenge solutions.  Teams have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at local tournaments, many of which take place between February and April.  The Regional Tournament is held in March 2019.
