ODYSSEY OF THE MIND
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. 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 take part in competitions on the local, state, and international level. Thousands of teams from throughout the United States and 25 other countries participate in the educational program.
In the program, there is a spontaneous competition, team members must also generate spontaneous solutions to a problem they have not seen before. This competition is divided into different divisions, namely: Division 2 for the Year 1s and Year 2s and Division 3 for the Year 3s and Year 4s.
