FROM IMAGINATION TO INNOVATION
Destination Imagination (DI) is a volunteer-led non-profit organization whose purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, we offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning and Early Learning.
Each Challenge is open-ended and enables students to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation while fostering their creativity, courage and curiosity. Academic tournaments take place around the province where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers.
Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge. In working to solve our Challenges, teams learn 21st century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage), step outside of their comfort zones to pursue ideas and make presentations, and build on their unique strengths.
This program reflects the current BC education plan and assists teachers implement this in the classroom in an interesting and memorable way. Thanks to a significant community gaming grant, DI is able to provide Challenge Program materials free to all who register.
