Is DI for You?

Traditional School

Students start a team and work on Challenges either as part of a class or as a club activity. They present their solutions at a tournament and/or at school showcases.
The process begins with starting a team. Instant Challenges are another resource to use.

Charter School

Students start a team and work on Challenges as part of a class or as a club. In addition a Challenge could be included in the curriculum as a project based unit. The process begins with starting a team. Instant Challenges are also another resource to use.

After School

Students start a team and work on Challenges as an enrichment program. Another alternative is to use Instant Challenges as stand alone activities. These are 20 to 30 minute activities that help build the skills needed to employ the Creative Process, from Imagination to Innovation.

Home School

Children from a group of home school families can start a team. The process would be very similar as that of any parent group. In addition, the team could be formed and sponsored by the home school resource centers.

Parent Groups

Groups of parents can get together to start a team of their children. A team manager is identified. Usually the team meets in the team manager’s home but this is flexible.

Youth Organizations

Challenges can be done as an activity or integrated into the training program. For example in scouts, the Challenges could be an integral part of ongoing patrol leader training. The instant challenges could be used in patrol competitions. To begin, start a team.
