Instant challenges are a part of the Destination Imagination program but can also be used at home or school. What are instant challenges? They are written challenges that require a team (2-7 students) to think quickly on their feet by applying appropriate skills to produce a solution in a period of 5-8 minutes. “In a world with growing cultural connections, increased levels and types of communication, and a new need for real-time teamwork and problem solving, the ability to solve problems quickly is becoming increasingly critical.”(Retrieved from

· The ability to assess and use available materials in creative ways.
