  • Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential. OotM proves that students can have fun while they learn.

    Odyssey problems have challenged students to design mechanical dinosaurs, invent new factory machinery, build working vehicles, write a new chapter to Moby Dick, put a twist on classic artworks, turn Pandora’s Box into a video game, and so much more.

    Since 1978, OotM problems have challenged students to go beyond conventional thinking and incorporate creative problem solving in learning. Creative Problem Solving is a skill that needs to be nurtured and developed. While a conventional education is important, learning to solve problems creatively and confidently gives them an important edge in their education and career goals. There is creativity inside each of us and OotM teaches how to tap into it so it can be applied to real-world problems.

    Odyssey teams consist of 7 team members.  The Odyssey of the Mind program is a popular program in Owen J. Roberts and we routinely have numerous students audition for spots on one of our teams.  Team members are chosen based on the results of an exam given prior to the start of the season.  This year’s exam is scheduled for Friday, October 25th.  The event will be hosted at East Vincent Elementary starting at 3:45 and ending at approximately 4:45 PM.  Interested students should procure transportation to and from the exam site and bring two sharp pencils with them.
