Odyssey of the Mind

Over the last five years, the Odyssey of the Mind program has come into its own. Wise School teams have placed first or second at every regional competition, gone to the State Tournament six years in a row and went to the World Finals three years in a row!

Odyssey of the Mind is an international problem-solving competition. Teams of seven students from around the country and the world choose a problem with a long list of criteria that must be met. The “solution” culminates in a one-of-a-kind performance that demonstrates not only how they have met this criteria, but their creativity, team work, problem solving, artistic abilities, costuming, and acting. Most importantly, all of the work must be accomplished by the kids, as there is no adult participation and only the guidance of a teacher/coach.
