Odyssey of the Mind

Odyssey of the Mind

OM, or Odyssey of the Mind, is a program in which students on a team use their creativity to solve a problem given to them. These include the categories of classical, technical, vehicle, theatrical, and structural. The team cannot use the help of their coach or any adult. The team presents their skit at the competition, which must be no longer than eight minutes. They also must compete in another part of the competition, the spontaneous portion, which is generally ten minutes long. These problems are hands-on or verbal. Throughout the season, teams use problem-solving skills to build, write, and perform. If you are interested in joining OM next year, tryouts are in September/October.
