Odyssey of the Mind is an international problem-solving competition that has rewarded students for creative thinking and teamwork for over 30 years. The program was piloted with 5th grade students in 2016-17 and will be expanded in 2017-18. Team members develop solutions to their specific problem all on their own, presenting their solution as an 8-minute performance at a regional tournament. Teams participate in short, spontaneous problems, which are designed to stimulate quick, creative thinking in a group environment. Teams present their long-term problem solution at the main regional competition in late March. Winners will advance to the state and world finals.
