Do you want to build your creative thinking skills in a team atmosphere? Odyssey of the Mind’s creative competitions combine the excitement of athletic competition with fun-filled often zany mental gymnastics. Teams match wits & abilities together to develop creative solutions to broadly defined problems. It allows students to work with others and provides them with the opportunity to learn creative problem solving, brainstorming, and teamwork. We will work with a given problem and try to solve it. There are 5 different categories that the team can choose from to solve the given problem: Vehicle Design; Technical Design; Classical Architecture, Art, Literature, Documentary; Balsa Wood Structure; or Fine Arts Performance. Our goal is to prepare a team for competition that will happen in the spring. If you like to think and solve problems, come join us.
