DI Changes Lives: hear from those involved in this impactful program:
DI Teams may be managed by any adult (ages 18+) who would like to create the next generation of innovative thinkers and leaders.
Team Managers are often teachers, school staff, parents, and/or community volunteers.
The Basic Steps to starting your own DI Team(s)
Assemble a Team
2-7 Students + 1-2 Adult Team Managers
You ALSO need to recruit one adult volunteer to serve as an APPRAISER.
Your APPRAISER will attend a training, and volunteer at the Regional Tournament. After they attend training, they should be able to provide some insight on tournament-day to the team!
Select which Team Challenge the team will solve:
Scientific | Technical | Engineering | Fine Arts | Improv | Service Learning
Early Learning / Rising Stars (for grades K-2)
Prepare for the Regional Tournament!
Teams should host weekly meetings (in-person and/or virtual) where they practice Instant Challenges (provided in the Program Materials), participate in team-building / skill-building activities, and work on their solution for their Team Challenge solution.
Other tasks involved in preparing for the Regional Tournament include:
1) Fill out Tournament Data Forms (included in the Team Challenge document)
