Odyssey of the Mind Team - Advances to State!!

The  “Odyssey of the Mind” upper school team competed at the first of two Regional tournaments in Flowery Branch, GA on March 2. The team finished 3rd in a field of 14 in their division for Problem 5, entitled “It’s How you Look at it”.

Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem solving competition, and these results were a combination of an 8-minute “long term solution”, a Style category, and a Spontaneous problem that team members are given and required to solve on-the-spot. The 7 team members worked since October on their long term solution, in which every detail was designed by the team members: the technical component, the script, the sets, and the costumes. Teamwork is the most valuable component to each part of the competition in this program.
