Gulf Coast Odyssey of the Mind 

Teams get to choose from six long term problems that appeal to a wide range of interests, and present their solutions to coaches, parents and judges during the Odyssey regional tournament. In Florida we have Regional competitions where teams advance to State Finals. Top teams from the State Finals go on to the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals.

The Gulf Coast region is proud of all of our teams, coaches, alumni and volunteers. And we are always looking for more. If you are interested in starting a team, learn more here.

Odyssey of the Mind is an international program for students in kindergarten through college. Members work in teams and use creative problem solving skills to produce solutions for a variety of problems. Problem solutions range from building working vehicles and inventive structures to live performances, written and acted by teams, which present creative solutions.

But what Odyssey of the Mind really means to team members is creative learning, building new skill sets, working as a team and having FUN! Team members each get to showcase their creative flair and unique abilities and build upon everyone’s ideas to enhance their solutions. Odyssey encourages participation and innovative thinking and the team environment gives everyone a chance to have his or her ideas heard.
