First of all, what is Odyssey of the Mind?
According to the official Odyssey of the Mind website, it is:
. . . an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.
For the 2010-2011 school year our school has five teams and they each competed at the regional level this past weekend.
It takes countless hours of students after school, teacher and parent volunteers and traveling to and from.
The elementary team won first place and will compete in the state level competition in April. Way to go kids!
One of our awesome veteran coaches was awarded Coach of the Year. Yeah Coach Joy!
Congratulations to each and every one of you. Impressive showing for all of your hard work. The Learning Center is extremely proud of you all!
