What is Destination Imagination?
Our Destination ImagiNation (DI) teams have won many State Championships throughout the years. The students have had great fun and formed great friendships during their times with their teams. For more information about the DI teams please contact Mary Carlson, 6th Grade Teacher. Her contact information is: Phone 517-925-5740 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Destination Imagination is a GREAT after-school activity that builds skills in problem-solving, team-work, communication and creative presentation. DI is a commitment - your team will count on your participation at meetings. Teams meet weekly, usually from early October until mid-March (or later).
At meetings, students work on two different kinds of activities - Instant Challenge and Central Challenge.
Instant Challenges give teams the opportunity to solve a quick, fun problem over a very short period of time (usually about 5 minutes). Team solutions are scored on how well the team's solution solved the problem, the creativity of their solution, and how well they worked together as a team to create and present their solution.
A team picks one Central Challenge to work on over the next six months - one of six choices offered by the DI organization. Each year, the specific problems that need to be solved for a Central Challenge change; however, the general categories of the challenges are the same from year to year. The categories are: Engineering, Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Improvisation or Service Learning. Central Challenges are complex and require teams to do a lot of problem-solving. All challenges require students to research and learn, build and create, write and act. It takes - literally - months for team members to fully understand and come up with solutions for all the aspects of their Central Challenge.
