Saturday, the campus of Southern New Hampshire University, our Innovation Sponsor, hosted DIve In! Team Member training. The program is run by the NH-DI Alumni in cooperation with the NH-DI Board of Directors. New Hampshire has 110,000 alumni who were on teams over the 37 year history of the organization.
Teams from around the state took a variety of sessions that helped enhance their creativity, collaboration and problem solving abilities. A series of STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts and Math) based sessions will add new options for teams that are working to solve open-ended Challenges in competition that starts in March. These sessions ranged from computer programming and stagecraft to upcycling materials, using music to forward plots and “think on their feet” Instant Challenges strategy, among others.
This was the largest DIve In! event held by our organization. Thank you to SNHU, and our amazing volunteers, both who helped run the event and the Team Managers and parents who brought teams!
