Our family became involved in DI, through the Washington Imagination Network (WIN), two years ago when our daughter joined a team. Her experience gave her challenges in a way she felt she could tackle in the most fun ways. She enjoyed it so much that she begged her dad to be a Team Manager last year (and again this year!) What DI does for kids is AMAZING. These kids get to put their ideas into action without us parents getting in the middle of it. In two years, our daughters have made huge strides in their ability to work with others, problem solve, and to really think outside the box. Schools don't often have the time or resources for kids to fully let loose with ideas and DI provides that outlet where critical thinking explodes and real world application is made by implementing their ideas. Also, having volunteered at local workshops, WIN does an incredible job of bringing the community in to support these kids, and they provide relevant, practical and thoughful support to the volunteers.
