Destination Imagination is a hands-on, project-based educational experience that encourages creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills. Each year seven new STEAM Challenges are created by our teams of content experts and educators to help students from K to Grade 12 learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think. Destination Imagination applies the creative process to help student teams create their own unique solutions to the requirements posed by the Challenges.
Destination Imagination Team Challenge packs are provided free of charge to schools, teachers, parents, and community organizations in BC. The digital packs include the Roadmap – our complete guide to managing a team from inception to imagination to innovation; the Rules of the Road with details about how to participate in tournaments and details for each Challenge.

Kate Boyd, Ally’s mom, is an educator in Powell River and a long time DI Team Manager. Every member from the Boyd’s family is very involved in different ways with DI.
“DI has taught me so many skills and techniques over the years and opened my mind to the possibilities. I’ve worked on teamwork, public speaking and acting skills, as well as research and using my imagination to its full potential. I’ve learned to compromise and find a way to make everyone’s ideas fit. I’ve learned that everyone has a strength to share and the challenge is in finding them all”.
