Odyssey of the Mind is a program that stretches the ability of students to present the solution to a problem by thinking and writing creatively. It is a great opportunity for young child to express their creative side!
Primary teams are comprised of seven team members from the first and second grades. Our tryouts are comprised of a writing component and the ability to follow directions and work cooperatively. Odyssey of the Mind is a program that focuses on student ability with minimal help from teachers and adults. There really is no way to prepare your child for tryouts. The adult input involves meeting schedules, following Odyssey of the Mind rules and regulations, guiding students in solving the problem given us by the Odyssey of the Mind organization and providing an atmosphere that encourages creativity.
Please note, students and parents need to be committed to the program. If accepted to the team and you quit, you cannot be replaced. Our team will compete with one less member. Students also have to make a commitment to attend all practices and competition.
