No Interference - what does it mean?

The hallmark of DI is “no interference.” Kids work completely independently on creative ideas and trial-and-error solutions to challenges.Parents do not assist with costumes, props, scripts, or ideas.The result is teams of kids proud of their independent accomplishments!

Our Scientific Challenge blends the curiosity of scientific research with the creative expression of performance art.

A broken jar, a bit of stone—the remains of the past are all around us. Have you ever wondered what those things might have been used for or what they meant to the people who made them? What archaeological mysteries will be revealed in this year’s Scientific Challenge?




The Technical Challenge prompts students to complete tasks by using engineering, research, strategic planning, and related skills.

Action, adventure, challenges to overcome! See the lights flashing and listen to the buzzers and bells as your team brings a pinball game to life! Hone your pinball skills and aim for the high score when you try this year’s Technical Challenge!




Our Engineering Challenge asks students to design and build a device to launch a beanbag.

In this season’s Engineering Challenge, you will test your accuracy as you launch beanbags using a launching device and tell a story about what happens when things do not go exactly as planned.

Fine Arts


Our Fine Arts Challenge helps students develop acting and creative skills through artistic media, theater arts, scriptwriting, and prop design.

Art has the power to move us or stop us in our tracks. In this year’s Fine Arts Challenge, you will bring a work of visual art to life and create your very own piece of kinetic art. What work of art will inspire you?



Our Improvisational Challenge is all about research, spontaneity, and storytelling. Teams receive topics and produce skits right on the spot.

Sometimes less is more, or more is less…Your team will use your improv skills to create a 2-act skit, complete with a costume created on the spot! An intensifier will tell your team whether you’ll maximize or minimize elements of your skit in the second act. Find out how things will change with the toss of a coin in this year’s Improvisational Challenge!

Service Learning


Our Service Learning Challenge is designed to engage students in public service that addresses real-life community issues.

Your team will dive into a world of fantasy in this year’s Service Learning Challenge. Use a map to guide you on your quest, but beware of the danger that awaits! What will you seek? Fame? Fortune? Or to make the world a better place? The quest is about to begin!

Early Learning


Rising Stars offers simple experiences with the creative process, giving kids (preschool through 2nd grade) a place to work together and make new friends.

Your team will create a play about a group of underwater creatures who go on a vacation to an underwater habitat.

Instant Challenge

Instant Challenges require teams to engage in quick, creative and critical thinking.

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.

The team members must think on their feet by applying appropriate skills to produce a solution in a period of just five to eight minutes.

Instant Challenges are performance-based, task-based, or a combination of the two. Although each Instant Challenge has different requirements, all Instant Challenges reward teams for their teamwork.
