• Odyssey of the Mind is a wonderful opportunity to use your imagination and have fun!

    What is Odyssey of the Mind about?

    • Students work in teams of up to seven members under guidance of an adult coach.
    • They spend weeks, even months, at their own pace, creating solutions to long-term problems.
    • Teams have 8 minutes to present their long-term problem solution in competition.
    • Team members come up with all the ideas for their solution and do all the work themselves.
    • Coaches help teach skills and educate the team on ways of approaching the problem of evaluating their solution.
