Odyssey of the Mind is an International Creativity Competition.  Teams of 5-7 students (facilitated by teacher or parent coaches) decide upon a challenge problem to develop a long-term solution.  Some problems are theatrical, some are technical and some are both! Teams write their own plays, create their own scenery and props, and address the challenge as creatively as possible given a limited budget! On competition day, teams present their solution and also solve a spontaneous challenge.
