Introducing Fast Flex Challenges!

In lieu of our traditional Instant Challenges, we’re offering an EXCLUSIVE experience to our Global Finals 2021 teams. Think your DI journey is over? It’s not! Teams can show off their creative, quick-thinking skills with our brand-new Fast Flex Challenges that build off of this season’s Team Challenge themes. Flex your creative muscles and solve the Challenge in two weeks or less.

Fast Flex Clarifications

All Fast Flex Clarifications are closed.


All of our Fast Flex Challenges build off of the themes of this season’s Team Challenges. Each Fast Flex Challenge is designed to be solved by teams who solve the Team Challenge of the same type from the 2020-21 season. For example, if your team solved the Technical Challenge this season, you will solve the Technical Fast Flex Challenge for Global Finals 2021. 

Teams will need to solve their Fast Flex Challenge in two weeks or less, without knowing the Challenge ahead of time. 


Fast Flex Challenge is worth 25% of a team’s overall score in the Global Finals tournament.


The Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Engineering, and Service Learning Fast Flex Challenges each have a $50US budget. The Improvisational Fast Flex Challenge does not have a budget.
