Odyssey of the Mind is a unique academic program designed to require students to work collaboratively to creatively tackle problems and find solutions. Teams of up to seven students are formed to solve one of five Long-term problems (Vehicle, Technical, Classics, Structure, or Performance) and present the solution in an eight-minute performance. In addition, teams compete to solve a Spontaneous problems on the day of competition. Odyssey of the Mind culminates in team competitions in March, April (if qualify), and May (if qualify). As such, students in the Odyssey class should be prepared to participate in the class, as well as extra-curricular activities and meetings with their team.
