Odyssey of the Mind is a teamwork, creativity, and problem-solving competition. We will hold classes for grades 3-5 and 6-8 from 1-3 on Thursdays inspired by OM activities. These classes will take place weekly from September 5 through October 24, after which we will see if there is enough interest to form teams for competition. Activities will include spontaneous problem-solving challenges, in which students will solve hands-on and verbal problems within a time limit and with only the given materials. Students will also create skits based on given problem parameters, and learn about teamwork through activities and discussion. The cost for each week is $20. There is a $5 discount if you register for an entire month, and a $10 discount if you register for the whole series of classes.
