What is OM?
Odyssey of the Mind, founded in 1978, is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities designed to teach students kindergarten through college to "think outside of the box." The emphasis is on teamwork, creativity and looking at things differently. Students are encouraged to use materials in unique ways and tap into their boundless creativity~ often the most outrageous ideas are the most creative! While working together as a team to generate a single, timed solution to their problem, they also practice skills that foster lifelong learning.
The best things about OM...it is 100% kid-generated! Everything~ from selecting a problem, finding solutions, costume design, ingenuity of thought, selection of props and scenery for skit- is all created by the students. Teams meet regularly-usually once a week starting in October. Regional and State Competitions are held in the spring. All competitive teams that place first, second, or receive a special creativity award at State are eligible to advance to World Finals in May.
At each meeting, teams work on both their chosen Long Term problem and a variety of Spontaneous problems.
