START A DI GEORGIA TEAM

Our Challenge Experience is open to all PK-12 and University students. Students form teams of up to 7 members, select their preferred Challenge, and work together over the course over several months to develop a solution to their chosen Challenge. Each STEAM-based Challenge is open-ended and enables students to learn and experience the creative process while fostering their creativity, curiosity, and courage.

The best part? Our Challenge Experience is 100% student-driven—meaning it’s up to the team to develop, create, and implement their own ideas without any outside Interference

STEP ONE

FORM A TEAM

 

We can help you recruit Team Members.

 

Recruit Kids

Teams are comprised of 2-7 members. The members can be from the same school, different schools or home-schooled. Teams are formed based on their grade or age and are designated as one of five Levels—the non-competitive Early Learning or the competitive Elementary, Middle, Secondary, or University Levels. Teams are able to include team members from differing ages/grade levels, but the team's Level at competition is determined by the age/grade of the eldest member. Host an Information Session at your school. We are here to help! Contact us to help you recruit more members.

 

Recruit Team Manager(s)

Find one or more adults willing to guide the Team. Team Managers are usually Parents, Grandparents, Teachers, or neighbors.

The fun begins!
