Looking for a unique, creative after school activity? Then, Destination Imagination (DI) is for you!
DI is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic DI Challenges in the fields of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), fine arts and service learning.
DI teaches skills students can use in all areas of their lives, such as creative problem solving, teamwork, time management, as well as patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. DI teams create solutions to challenges, then present those solutions at one or more tournaments.
Through DI, students use the creative process to turn their ideas into reality and learn invaluable skills through the process including:
- Creative and critical thinking
- Team building
- Problem solving
- Risk taking
- Project management
Since its inception at BFA, we have sent several teams to compete at the regional and state levels; most recently, two teams represented the school at DI’s international level of competition – Global Finals – in May, 2016.
