HOW CALDI WORKS
California Destination Imagination (CALDI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. We partner with schools, where they sponsor teams as an after school program. Our tournaments are listed in the school’s suggested activities. Parents oftentimes can form their own team and serve as team managers. Currently we reach students and parents through school fliers, parent nights, and word of mouth. (science, technology engineering, art and math), Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning.
Throughout the process of solving a Challenge, participants learn invaluable life skills.
WHAT IS CALDI
We offer seven standards-based Challenges in STEAM (science, technology engineering, art and math), Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning.
Challenges allow students from pre-K through university to become part of a global community of confident creators and practice the essential skills needed to thrive in school, future careers and beyond.
Students work together in teams to generate ideas, research different topics, plan and build their challenge solutions. Team members have the opportunity to explore their curiosities and be creative, while building teamwork, problem-solving and critical thinking skills!
