Our Mission

NYDI is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization.

We inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders.

What We Do

NYDI is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, curiosity and courage through open-ended academic Challenges. We hold tournaments where student teams showcase their solutions to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning Challenges. Our participants build a lifelong confidence in working together to solve any challenge.
