DI is a creative problem-solving competition where students solve                     based challenges

Teams of 2-7 students are tasked with finding a solution to a Central Challenge that they will prepare ahead of the tournament and an Instant Challenge that they will see for the first time at the competition.

The Instant Challenge is done on the spot. While students can practice from past challenges, at the competition they will need to rely on teamwork, quick thinking and an ability to adapt and compromise to show growth mindset.

Our mission is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. 

For the Central Challengestudents will research, write scripts, build sets, create props and costumes and engineer technical wizardry to showcase how they will solve either an Engineering, Scientific, Technical, Improvisational, Fine Arts, Service Learning or Rising Star Challenge. This is an extraordinary cross-curricular activity where language studies, visual arts, math, design and technology, geography, history, science and music are all connected.
