You’re navigating schedule changes, modifications for distance learning, maintaining lunch programs and other necessary aid for your students, plus a slew of new needs no one could have anticipated.
Have you forgotten about project-based learning? Personalized learning? Meeting students’ social-emotional requirements?
Parents have high expectations for their children.
Destination Imagination (DI) provides experiential, project-based learning in a competitive environment, that helps kids with:
STEAM-based challenges that students solve in teams.
Kids blossom developing ideas that build on what they learn in school
Each student has a voice and space to develop unique abilities and talents.
Team members make all the decisions and even manage the budget.
We love to see kids thrive, and we can help you engage kids and your parent community.
DI is an international problem-solving competition for students of all ages. Our student-led STEAM-based challenges reinforce core SEL competencies—social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, self-awareness, and self-management.
These projects can be incorporated into distance learning and offer an inclusive learning environment where all students feel welcomed and valued.
