Get Started!

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.
