Concordia's Destination ImagiNation Program

Destination ImagiNation is a highly creative, after-school activity in which students work in teams to solve mind-bending challenges and present their solutions at tournaments.

 

The 2009-10 school year was our first year having Destination ImagiNation teams made up of Concordia students.  Teams generally meet once a week to work on the challenge chosen by their team and to complete all sorts of other fun and creative activities geared towards working on teamwork skills and practicing creative problem solving. The teams work hard starting in October to solve their chosen challenges and to prepare for their regional tournament.

 

 

If any parent is interested in forming a DI team for this school year , all you need to do is find a team of kids, and find a parent or parents willing to serve as Team Managers. Team Managers are strictly facilitators. They do not assist the kids in coming up with a solution. Rather, they do guided activities with the children to help them develop the skills they will need to tap into their creativity and to work together well as a team to tackle open-ended and complex problems. With many years of experience now at Concordia, and with several trained team managers to serve as helpful resources, if you have the interest, DI can provide a wonderful experience with your child and his or her teammates. 

 

Each new team requires a team manager willing to fully run the team.  Each team manages its own participation costs and team expenses because neither the school nor the school district funds this program.  Destination ImagiNation runs for about five months, starting in October and ending after the late-February regional tournament (with additional time if the children go on to further tournaments).
