    Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential. OotM proves that students can have fun while they learn. We will meet in the fall for an info session and to gauge interest. Each team must have at least one parent coach. If we garner enough interest for a team, we will form teams and register for the year and for competitions. We also work in conjunction with Momentum Arts.
