Odyssey of the Mind Regional Tournament Package
Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving competition for students of all ages from various schools. Participating students are challenged to solve an open-ended problem of their choice. Problems are designed to appeal to a wide range of interests and to stimulate team members to think divergently. Teams of students in grades K-12 work on creative solutions to nationally developed long-term and spontaneous problems as part of an annual international competition. Included in the package is a fall training session for new coaches, monthly building coordinator communication and emails, and the regional tournament in March.
This two-hour workshop is designed to provide students familiarity with and strategies for success with the three types of creative problems - verbal, hands-on and hybrid - that are featured during the spontaneous component of the regional Odyssey of the Mind Tournament. This workshop is suitable both for current Odyssey teams and any other K-12 students who enjoy creative problem solving. It is possible to order this service without ordering the tournament package; however, the workshop alone does not grant entrance into the regional tournament.
