WELCOMe

Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem solving program and competition for students in grades K-college.  It fosters teamwork, divergent thinking, risk-taking, creativity - and much more!  Students work in small teams and solve open-ended problems.  They learn to think on their feet, analyze results, & see things differently!   It's FUN & CHALLENGING.  If you've never done Odyssey of the Mind before, this is your year to start!

Thank You!
