STEAM-based Challenges Fostering Creativity

Destination Imagination’s open-ended STEAM-based Challenges enable students to learn and experience the creative process while fostering their creativity, curiosity, and courage. Destination Imagination is open to all kindergarten through university-level students worldwide. Students form teams of up to seven members, select their preferred Challenge, and work together to develop a solution to the Challenge. The academic Challenges are designed to teach the creative process. Each season Destination Imagination offers seven new and engaging Team Challenges in the categories of Technical, Scientific, Engineering, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Service Learning, and Early Learning. These Challenges encourage students to explore their passions, discover their unique talents and abilities, and learn new skills. Teams can also participate in Instant Challenges—quick creative and critical-thinking exercises that build teamwork and problem-solving abilities. Each season’s Challenges take place during the school year, with new Challenges released on August 1. Teams typically spend two to four months developing and rehearsing their Challenge solutions. Teams compete with their solutions at local tournaments, many of which take place between February and April. (More specific tournament information will be available in November.) Teams that qualify at their regional and state/country–level tournaments are invited to showcase at Global Finals—the world’s largest celebration of student creativity—in May.
