California Destination Imagination

Empowering Tomorrow's Innovators & Leaders

Destination Imagination

Our Program is a hands-on problem solving experience that inspires kids to be outrageously creative. Using STEAM, teams of students think outside the box and create unique solutions to one of seven different challenges in preparation for a FUN innovative competition. 


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!

Our Program is 100% Kid Driven

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 65% of today’s students will be employed in jobs that have yet to be invented. Our 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. 

Throughout the process of solving a Challenge, participants learn invaluable life skills.​
