TCM is dependent on the support of volunteers to provide the supervision and the managing of the teams. The donation of the supporters from the community will ensure many students to be able to continue taking on the challenges which will prepare them to be creative problem solvers. Every dollar donated will be put to good use, such as purchasing membership with Destination ImagiNation, Regional and Affiliate Finals and ultimately the Global Finals registration. We must rely on sponsors and donors like you to keep us growing and serving the kids. Please take a moment and consider sponsoring the students from Troy School District so that they can represent their city and do what they do best: creative problem solving through great teamwork! Your help will ensure the future of TCM to make sure that creativity keeps flowing!
TCM is run by volunteers who help students of Troy School District (TSD) engage in various activities that provide educational programs for students to learn and experience creativity, teamwork and problem solving. The DI program in TSD has been around for more than 10 years and we have had many teams represent TSD and Michigan at DI-Global Finals where teams from over 30 countries gather to compete in many challenges.
Destination Imagination (DI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. Our purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, we offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge is open-ended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Academic tournaments take place around the world where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers. Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge. In working to solve our Challenges, teams learn 21st century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage) to build on their unique strengths.
Troy Creative Minds (TCM) is a non-profit organization committed to helping the students of Troy School District participate in a world-wide creativity program in which students grades K-high school work in teams to solve a team selected challenges designed by the world’s largest creative problem solving organization: Destination ImagiNation.
