DO YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO LEARN THE VALUABLE SKILLS

OF CREATIVITY, TEAMWORK, AND PROBLEM-SOLVING IN A FUN AND EXCITING WAY?

 

The Destination ImagiNation Program is a process-based program grounded in sound creative problem solving theory. Teams of 2 to 7 members learn essential skills in creative and critical thinking, teamwork, time management and problem solving. They work together to create their solution to a Team Challenge, which can have a focus that is theatrical, structural, improvisational, scientific or technical. Teams also learn and practice creative quick-thinking skills for the Instant Challenge portion of the program. Destination ImagiNation (DI) helps young people learn in a fun and supportive environment, and the valuable skills they’ve acquired will be with them for a lifetime.

Team members work together, during or after school, under the guidance of a teacher or trained parent or community volunteer team managers (Co-Leaders). The members work together to brainstorm, develop, and refine their solutions to the complex Team Challenge of their choice, and present their solutions at the WV Destination ImagiNation State Competition, in the spring.
