Destination Imagination

DI logo
No doubt you are familiar with every kind of tournament from sports to spelling. But have you ever heard of rewarding kids for thinking? Here at FORES we're arming our kids with the ability to be creative,original thinkers-people who know how to solve challenges. Destination Imagination is a school-based problem solving program that gives kids the tools they need to think on their feet and work together as a team.

Each fall we organize teams to participate in the DI program. What that means is teams of 5-7 children with parents, teachers, and other adults as team managers work all year to solve one of seven different Destination Imagination Challenges - mind-bending problems that range from technical, scientific, theatrical, improvisational, structural, to community service as well as a challenge especially for primary teams. Meeting after school on Fridays and other times during the week, the teams spend the school year developing solutions and performances that explain those solutions, and then they present both at our local regional tournament in the spring. Winning teams advance to the state tournament with the hope of qualifying to participate in the Global Finals in Tennessee in May.
