Destination Imagination is a volunteer-led, educational non-profit organization that teaches “21st century” skills and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) principles to kindergarten through university level students through collaborative problem solving challenges.
Students form teams of up to 7 members, select their preferred Challenge and work together to develop a solution to the Challenge. Each team has at least one team manager (often a parent or teacher) who helps keep the team on track, but does not assist or interfere with the team’s project.
