Odyssey Of The Mind

Odyssey of the Mind - Eau Claire Area School District

OM is a zany, hand-on, problem solving activity that provides a platform for creative minds.  Teams (of up to seven students) spend months working to solve a problem; most teams meet weekly on a night of their choosing for one to two hours.  Groups (comprised of various talents) use a number of mediums; these can include script writing, tinkering/building (think Rube Goldberg), music, various degrees of acting, costume design, prop building etc.  There is also a spontaneous/impromptu element.  Teams ultimately compete (typically March - in Madison) against other Wisconsin teams for an opportunity to compete in the OM World Finals.  This creative experience also focuses on things like teamwork, organization, time management, and budgeting.
