Destination Imagination is the world's largest creative problem-solving program for students. Focusing on teaching students how to solve team-based, interdisciplinary challenges without adult intervention, DI has helped students learn more about how to hone their STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) skills since its inception in 1999. Bob Jones High School has had at least one DI team since 2003, following the lead of Discovery Middle School, which has had DI teams since 1999.
DI teams meet after school, in the evenings, and on weekends - the meeting schedule is individualized by teams, which are led by background-checked parent/community volunteers under the oversight and leadership of Mrs. Dauma (BJHS) and Mrs. Hughes (DMS).
The 2020-21 DI season will begin a bit later than usual, due to the program making adjustments for virtual competition this year. If you are interested in DI, please check back here in September for an online application packet/contact form. Teams will form and begin meeting in October, with competitions tentatively scheduled for February (regionals), March (state), and May (Global Finals). Exact dates will be included in the application packet when it is posted.
Please email Mrs. Dauma with any questions!
