Who, What, Why, Where and When


DI features teams of up to 7 participants each. Our participants range in age from 2nd Graders through High School students. Each team needs an adult Team Manager.


Teams develop solutions to DI Team Challenges and Instant Challenges. They present their solutions at Tournaments.


Each season takes place from October through March (May if you make it to Globals). Teams typically spend five months developing their Team Challenge solutions and practicing Instant Challenges.


Teams practice wherever they can find space, so they practice in living rooms, garages, classrooms and similar locations! Tournaments typically take place in local schools.


Teams participate to have fun and meet new friends! Additionally, teams also learn and experience creative problem solving.
