Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is a problem-solving competition in which teams of 5-7 compete at the regional, state, and international level. Competitions consist of two parts. First, each team solves a long-term problem, in which students might design a weight-bearing structure, create a vehicle of some sort, or write their own play based on a set of prompts. Second, each team will be faced with a spontaneous problem, which they must solve on the spot in a matter of seconds. They might be tasked with anything from creating an ad for a flashlight to using forks, string, and tape to quickly move Ping-Pong balls across a room without them touching the floor. OM teaches teamwork, out-of-the-box thinking, and complex problem solving. Whether you like engineering or acting, writing or robots, we can use your skills. And it is fun! Join us!
