Odyssey of the Mind

Odyssey of the Mind is an internationally recognized program that teaches grade 3-5 students to learn creative problem-solving methods while having fun in the process. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.

Odyssey of the Mind is a 100% volunteer run program. Parent coaches support and advise teams to create a solution for published problems.

Odyssey of the Mind is a challenging and time intensive TEAM activity requiring regular weekly effort over a span of 5-6 months. All team members are expected to attend regular practices and are required to attend competitions. As competition nears, most teams will add extra practice sessions or meet for a longer period. Because teams are so small, stellar attendance by all team members is critical to the team's ability to produce a successful solution.

Program Fee (if selected): A $45 program fee per student is due at the 1st practice session. Program fee covers competition costs as well as building supplies.
