OM stands for Odyssey of the Mind. DI stands for Destination Imagination. Both are originated in the United States and aim to foster youth's spirit of creation and teamwork.
DI and OM Challenges are open-ended, allowing teams to express themselves creatively and take full ownership of their solutions. Challenges are designed to teach the creative process—a system of learning that is at the root of innovation and a child’s ability to bring an idea to life. Club eventually will form a 7-people team to complete the competition.
The competition consists of team challenge and instant challenge. The team challenge is long-term and requires intensive background information. The team needs to complete the corresponding tasks in response to multiple specific requirements and situations, testing the team cooperation abilities and comprehensive quality. Instant Challenges are quick creative and critical-thinking exercises that build teamwork and reinforce problem-solving skills like rapid ideation and implementation.
In the OM/DI club, the team members bravely brainstorm, utilize their talents, dare to innovate, and perform enthusiastically and give full play to the team spirit and their personal ability in the process of the competition. Experiencing a wonderful, unforgettable journey! Looking forward to your joining!
