What is Destination Imagination (DI)?

Destination Imagination (DI) is a project-based learning experience that applies the creative process across seven challenge areas—technology, science, engineering, fine arts, improvisation, service learning, and early learning—and is open to any team of students from kindergarten through university. By participating in Destination Imagination Team Challenges, students gain the 21st-century skills needed to thrive in school, careers and beyond, including creative and critical thinking, collaboration, and project management. Teams have the opportunity to

showcase their innovative Challenge solutions at Regional and Affiliate DI competitions and vie for a spot at Global Finals—the world’s largest celebration of creativity.
