Mission Statement

DI is dedicated to teaching children the creative process using creativity tools,

hands-on experiential programming, and trained volunteers. Our Challenge

Program is developed with the input of outside industry experts, educators

volunteers and parents, and it is connected to STEM and National Educational

Standards. At our creativity celebrations, student solutions are not judged, but

apPRAISEd without deducting points. Teams that make it to Global Finals, our

culminating creativity celebration, continue their learning experience by

interacting in our Innovation Expo, which features world-class organizations such

as NASA, 3M, Casio, Texas Instruments, Michigan Tech, AEM/Volvo, Keva Planks,

Ameresco Solar, and the U.S. Air Force.
