Gospel-Reflections-800x800-gold-outlineI coached my daughter’s Destination Imagination (DI) team this year. DI is a problem solving program that incorporates engineering, drama, and team work. At each practice, I would have the kids solve a timed Instant Challenge (IC): some problem that needed to be solved in eight minutes or less. The majority of the IC’s required building.

It was fascinating to watch the kids in action. I wasn’t allowed to help them solve the problem; I could only give feedback after the fact. Countless times, my feedback included the lesson that a large and sturdy foundation supports better than a small and weak one.
