Destination Imagination (DI) is a community-based, school-friendly program that builds participants’ creativity, problem solving, and teamwork in enjoyable and meaningful ways.  DI is a place where kids take what they know and what they are good at and learn to apply it to solve challenges, working together and cooperatively with a team and pushing the limits of imagination to best not their competition, but themselves.  Teams of five to seven members work together to apply creativity, critical thinking and their particular talents to solve a Team Challenge.  There are five competitive Team Challenges from which teams may choose, each with its own educational focus.  Each Team Challenge is designed to be open-ended and solvable in many ways and on many levels.  There is also an “Instant Challenge” component to DI which incorporates improvisation with fun and cooperative problem solving.
