Destination Imagination is a STEAM based creative problem solving program for students from pre-school to university age from all over the world. Students use critical thinking skills to create a solution to an open ended problem. They create a performance, use technical and engineering skills, as well as creativity, science, and mathematics. There are regional, state, and global competitions in 7 different categories in 4 age groups.
Through our programs, students use the creative process to turn their ideas into reality and learn invaluable skills through the process including:
- Creative & Critical Thinking
- Team Building
- Problem Solving
- Risk Taking
- Project Management
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.
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. We offer seven engaging academic Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning and Early Learning.
