The Destination Imagination (DI) program is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students' creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process.
An LISD-sponsored activity, DI teams are managed by parent volunteers, and team DI solutions are entirely kid-created. Teams will meet at the time and place of their choosing, and challenges are broken up by grade --K-2nd (Rising Stars) or 3rd-5th (6 different themed Competitive challenges available based on team interest). Teams may showcase their solutions at a tournament, and competitive teams will have the opportunity to advance to further levels.
