If you are interested in participating in DI next year, preview the challenges here and think about where you might want to go. Please watch for more information to come. We will be starting to form DI teams MUCH earlier this coming school year!
 
General Program Information:
For the 2017-2018 school year, the DI Program will be available on four elementary campuses (Parmley, C.C. Hardy, Turner, and Meador) and both Middle School campuses (Lucas and Brabham); availability is based on volunteer teacher club sponsorship as team manager and team size is limited by the Destination Imagination organization.
 
Teams meet one to two days per week immediately after dismissal with a  teacher as a volunteer group facilitator to work on both team building activities, team instant challenges, Improvisation theater, and research/practice for competitions. 
 
We welcome parent mentors or co-team managers, so if you have a passion for engineering, construction, theater, art, a special skill and would like to help, please let me know ASAP.
