1 CHALLENGE. 1 DEADLINE. 1 NEW ADVENTURE.
IS YOUR TEAM UNABLE TO RETURN TO IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION? OR DO THEY JUST LOVE THE VIRTUAL DI EXPERIENCE?
We want to ensure that ALL students are able to participate in DI during the 2021-22 school year, so we’ve created a brand new way to challenge creative minds around the world!
For the teams unable to meet in person or for the teams just looking for a new way to do DI, the 2021 Digital Open is here!
Six Weeks to Solve!
Registered teams will receive the Challenge on October 1. Then, they will have just under 6 weeks to solve one awesome new Challenge that’s flexible enough for any learning environment – virtual, in-person or hybrid.
See below for the complete schedule!
Top the Digital Charts
Just like at Global Finals, teams will be scored and ranked. Winners will be announced in December. There will also be a virtual showcase for all the teams’ hard work!
Truly OPEN to Everyone!
Best of all, it’s open to students anywhere in the world and team members do not have to be in the same location. So grab your friends, no matter where they are, and get ready to make some digital magic in The 2021 DI Digital Open.
And in case you’re wondering – YES, you may participate in both the 2021 Digital Open AND in the traditional, in-person Challenge Experience.
