Destination Imagination Changes Lives
WHAT WE DO
At Destination Imagination, we believe that when an educational experience is hands-on, collaborative and fun, students are empowered to take their learning to the next level and are excited to do so. DI provides unique educational experiences across seven project-based Challenge types–Technical, Scientific, Engineering, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Service Learning, and Early Learning.
New, open-ended Team Challenges are developed annually with the help of educators, subject matter experts and qualified volunteers to cover a wide range of student interests and align to current educational standards.
HOW WE DO IT
Destination Imagination applies a unique pedagogy to bring our educational experiences to life. Our principles include:
- Ultimate Learner Ownership
- Resource Awareness
- Clarifying Questions
- Authentic Self-Expression
- Rapid Ideation & Implementation
This entirely learner-focused methodology empowers students to take the lead and provides a framework within which they can take risks and learn from failure. DI participants become lifelong problem solvers who are inspired to innovate creative solutions to real-world challenges quickly and collaboratively.
Problem solving, team building, and a respect for others and their ideas are at the foundation of all of our Challenges.
WHY IT MATTERS
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 65% of today’s students will be employed in jobs that have yet to be invented. Our Challenges allow students from pre-K through university to become part of a global community of confident creators and practice the essential skills needed to thrive in school, future careers and beyond.
