Do you have creative youth in your life who are interested in problem-solving, self-expression, and becoming a part of a team? Are you looking to immerse your students in more STEAM-based programming? Maine Destination Imagination (DI) is looking for parents, caregivers, and educators that are interested in becoming Team Managers, and facilitating the problem-solving process with students ages PreK-12. In DI, teams of 2-7 students work together to create a unique solution to one of six Team Challenges, before presenting their solutions at the Maine State Tournament on March 11th in Belfast. Along the way, students learn to harness each other’s strengths, try new things, think creatively, and strengthen social emotional learning skills. Come guide a group of young learners through a creative, STEAM-focused team competition

Feeling unsure? Learn more about how DI changes lives in this short video. This year, in addition to the training provided by DI Headquarters, if you start a team, you will have the opportunity to connect with other Team Managers to reflect on your practice and strengthen your own facilitation skills in a special Maine DI ACRES cohort. Contact Emma Carey at ecarey@mmsa.org to learn more about how to make DI a part of your community! Become a Team Manager today!
