Who We Are???

Destination Imagination (DI) is a global educational nonprofit dedicated to inspiring the next generation of innovators, leaders and creative problem solvers.


At Destination Imagination, we believe that when an educational experience is hands-on, collaborative and fun, students are empowered to take their learning to the next level and are excited to do so. DI provides unique educational experiences across seven project-based Challenge types–Technical, Scientific, Engineering, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Service Learning, and Early Learning.

New, open-ended Team Challenges are developed annually with the help of educators, subject matter experts and qualified volunteers to cover a wide range of student interests and align to current educational standards. Learn more about the Challenges DI participants are solving this season.


Destination Imagination applies a unique pedagogy to bring our educational experiences to life. Our principles include:

Ultimate Learner Ownership

Resource Awareness

Clarifying Questions

Authentic Self-Expression

Rapid Ideation & Implementation

This entirely learner-focused methodology empowers students to take the lead and provides a framework within which they can take risks and learn from failure. DI participants become lifelong problem solvers who are inspired to innovate creative solutions to real-world challenges quickly and collaboratively.

Problem solving, team building, and a respect for others and their ideas are at the foundation of all of our Challenges.

All of our educational experiences are rooted in Destination Imagination’s creative process.
