Destination Imagination – Students in grades K-5 will be presented with challenges that encourage them to use the creative process to turn their ideas into reality. Students work in teams to research, design and build a solution to their preferred challenge. In solving a challenge, they learn the creative process – a powerful learning tool that helps students assess problems, reflect on their progress, learn from failure and turn their original ideas into reality. Students who participate in the Challenge Program have the opportunity to present their solutions at a local tournament and if they qualify at the state level, they're invited to participate in Global Finals, our culminating international tournament that celebrates student creativity.
