When I was in third grade, my mom told me about a new program my school was offering, called Destination Imagination (DI). I remember her saying it involved solving problems, using lots of duct tape, and spending countless hours with my peers to create skits. I was one of those kids who wanted to try everything, so I was immediately on board. After my team’s first meeting (which involved a candy Instant Challenge, a review of the potential problems to solve, and the decision to investigate ancient Egypt), I was hooked. Destination Imagination fueled my love for learning. Creativity and learning went hand-in-hand; the ability to explore concepts in an original manner ensured deep processing of the material, and inspired me to bring learning outside of the classroom.

So, your team has chosen the Scientific Challenge. Great choice! Throughout the eleven years I participated on a Destination Imagination (DI) team, we almost always picked the Science Challenge. Even if your personal hero isn’t Jonas Salk or Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a part of everyone that is inspired by learning how the universe works. And, like all DI Challenges, the Scientific Challenge will require your team to explore many areas, from engineering to fine arts.
