Want to know more about Destination Imagination (DI)? Please attend a DI informational/kick off meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 29, in the Middle School Commons (second floor) to learn about this great program. We encourage you to bring your student if s/he is new to DI.
In case you’re new to DI, below are a few highlights:
- International, educational program that gives kids an amazing outlet for their creativity.
- Teaches leadership, teamwork, positive thinking, project management and so much more.
- Annually offers new academic challenges in the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), fine arts, service learning and early learning.
- Provides opportunities for students to solve challenges and learn the creative process from imagination to innovation along the way.
- Supplies students the skills needed to thrive in school, their careers and beyond.
- Teams (made up of two to seven kids) solve one main challenge in their own unique way and present their solutions at the South Metro Regional Tournament in the spring. They also solve an on-the-spot (instant) challenge where they must think quickly on their feet and work together to solve a problem (generally in five minutes).
- Volunteers (e.g., Team Managers, school coordinator, etc.) get to count their hours toward BFA volunteer hours.

- DI (in general), see the BFA DI webpage (includes FAQs and videos)

In addition, the STEM Committee is looking to fill its BFA DI school coordinator for the 2022-23 school year. It is a fun volunteer position (and an easy way to get your BFA hours). NOW is a great time to shadow BFA DI’s current coordinator to learn about the position. If you have any interest in this position, your child joining a team and/or being a Team Manager, please email Jason Sunahara, BFA DI coordinator.
