Destination Imagination: Try DI Night

Destination Imagination of New York is the local Affiliate (chapter) of Destination Imagination (DI), a global educational nonprofit dedicated to inspiring the next generation of innovators, leaders, and creative problem solvers. DI has more than 1 million alumni worldwide working for major companies like Google, Disney, SpaceX, ASPCA, and Viacom.

At Destination Imagination, we believe that when an educational experience is hands-on, collaborative and fun, students are empowered to take their learning to the next level and are excited to do so. DI provides unique educational experiences across seven project-based Challenge types: Technical, Scientific, Engineering, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Service Learning, and Early Learning.

Student teams of two to seven members craft their solutions all without adult interference - meaning that every idea is kid-driven and kid-powered. Teams will present their solutions at our local tournament on March 14th in Ossining, New York. Top teams can qualify to advance to a state and global level.

So on December 16, get ready to try DI! Parents will get a crash course on what DI is and students will get to explore our spontaneous, short-term Instant Challenges. Parents and students interested in joining a team will be matched with other interested in parents and students in their area.

This event is open to anyone in the area. Feel free to email any questions to ddicicco@nydi.org. We can't wait to see you there!

2020 vision

Soooo, we’re a couple weeks into the new decade, and it’s time we evaluated how it’s going so far. Did you make some New Year’s resolutions? Things about yourself that you’d like to change or improve? They’re not “New Year’s resolutions” to me, because most of them are the same ones I made to start the Old Year that didn’t improve very ...

The revolt of the machines

At 5 p.m. on December 31 the drain in my bathroom sink got stuck. Couldn’t do it on the 30th or wait until January 2nd…no…it chose New Year’s Eve (when no one is available) to stop working. Must have been year end pixies because one minute it was fine and the next flattened against the sink, immovable.  I tried prying it up, but to no avail.  I then called my ...

On Stage: May the Farce Be With You

Like a famous, old candy bar commercial sang, “Sometimes you feel like a nut… sometimes you don’t.”
For the times you do, though, a stage farce is the ticket to let yourself go, as you go along in totally suspended disbelief with the hellzapoppin hijinks on stage. After all, who says grown-ups aren’t allowed to groan every now and then in the name of mirth.   ...
