TMSOdyssey of the Mind
General description and information (PLEASE READ IF INTERESTED):Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. 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.Odyssey of the Mind involves committment, just like a sport. If you decide to quit halfway through the season, you are letting your team down. Please make sure you have the time to commit to your team. Students practice with their team at their coach's home usually twice a week. The coach can be a teacher or parent or two of one of the team members. In addition to Team Meetings, the OM program also has Club Meetings once a month to help teams with registration, paperwork, and Spontaneous Practice.Club Meetings: Once a month on Tuesdsays after schoolTeam Meetings: 1-2 times a week location may vary depending on the coachAdvisor: Ms. Lyrla951-696-1410 x4534
