LISD Destination Imagination: Strategically Designed for Success!
DI is a creative problem-solving program sponsored by LISD as an extracurricular activity for all students interested in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), the arts and community service. Students participate in small teams with a parent volunteer as the leader, working to solve mind-bending problems as they put their knowledge and creativity to work. It is a fun activity that builds teamwork, creativity and planning skills and reinforces LISD’s curriculum through project-based learning.
