DI helps young people build essential skills in creative and critical thinking, teamwork, time management and problem solving. Up to seven participants work together as a team to create their solution to a Team Challenge, which can have a focus that is theatrical, structural, improvisational, scientific or technical. Teams also learn and practice creative quick-thinking skills for the Instant Challenge portion of the program. DI helps young people learn in a fun and supportive environment, and the valuable skills they’ve acquired will be with them for a lifetime.

Team members work together, after school, under the guidance of trained parent or community volunteer team managers. The members work together to brainstorm, develop, and refine their solutions to the complex Team Challenge of their choice,  and present their solutions at the WV DI State Competition, March 21, 2015.
