Choose your Teams Managers as soon as possible.
Team Managers can be teachers, community leaders and/or parents. All the creative problem solving will come from the kids, so a Team Manager's role is to guide and mentor the team. This is an important position - and we will be happy to support you in any way that we can. Note: TMs are required to have a background check. If you are a teacher currently working in a school, or already have a current background check, please let us know.
Make a team of 2-7 students! (Kindergarten - Grade 2 Rising Stars can have up to 10 students.)
DI is both a school program and an independent team program. In some schools, teachers will embed DI right into the curriculum. They will divide their students into smaller groups and each group will take on the Challenge that appeals to them the most. In other schools or organizations, DI is an enrichment or extracurricular activity where a group of interested students will work on DI during their lunch hour or after school. We also have Independent, Home School and Club teams that are made up of siblings and friends who fall within the same age bracket. All are welcome!
Look over the Central Challenge Sneak Peeks and choose the one that fits best with your team.
If you would like more information about any of the Challenges, please don't hesitate to ask us. We can answer questions by email or set up a Zoom call.
