Destination Imagination (DI) is a volunteer run program encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts and service learning.

Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. Teams may showcase their solutions at a tournament.

Coppell DI had a very successful year with 34 teams represented in the regional tournament, 5 advanced to states and 2 teams advanced to global finalsCheck Coppell DI website for more details.
