DI is a hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage, and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM, fine arts and service learning. Students learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem-solving process. Teams showcase their solutions at a tournament. This year they would like to form 6 teams with 5-7 students with total impact of 30-42 students. This is open to grades K-12th. Currently, there are 1st grade, SMS and SHS teams interested and hoping for 2 more elementary teams. The regional tournament is in Spearfish 2023. Costs include team registrations, t-shirts, DI pin, supplies for Challenges, snacks for 16 weeks.
