Thousands of students, teachers, and parents will converge on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus on Saturday, April 1st, 2023, for the Destination Imagination (DI) Wisconsin Affiliate Tournament.
Students ages 5 to 18 will participate in the Destination Imagination Challenge Experience that includes six competitive Team Challenges that are rooted in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) concepts. Students form teams of up to seven members, select their preferred Challenge, and work together to develop their Challenge solution. Teams have been working on their Challenge for months leading up to the tournament.
Teams are also required to engage in Instant Challenges, which require students to think under pressure to produce a solution on the spot.
Team Challenge solutions are presented in front of live audiences, while Instant Challenges are tackled confidentially. Both Team Challenge and Instant Challenge solutions are assessed by trained volunteer Appraisers.
Scores for these components determine advancement to the next level of tournament.
Teams that advance past Affiliate Tournaments will be invited to Global Finals in Kansas City, Missouri, in May. Rising Stars (5K through 2nd grade) participate non-competitively.
