Wisconsin DI: Where Creativity & Imagination Let You See The Future
Imagine for a moment (pun intended) that a program exists where if the rules don't say you can't, then you (probably) can, teams are run by the team members and not a coach, your team gets to solve open-ended Challenges using imagination and creativity, and thinking outside the box (or building something with it) is strongly encouraged.
If a program like this interests you, then look no further! Destination Imagination® (DI) is all these things and more!
WHAT IS DESTINATION IMAGINATION?
Destination Imagination (DI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. Our purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, we offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge is open-ended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Academic tournaments take place around the world where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers. Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge. In working to solve our Challenges, teams learn 21st century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage) to build on their unique strengths.
