Odyssey of the Mind ‘is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college,’ said Odyssey of the Mind website. “Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and world level.”
