Collins Destination Imagination
Destination Imagination (DI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization.Â Its purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders.Â Annually, they offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM:Â Improvisational, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning.Â Each Challenge is open-ended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation.Â Academic tournaments take place around the world where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers.Â Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge.Â In working to solve these Challenges, teams learn 21stÂ century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage) to build on their unique strengths.
