• Odyssey of the Mind

    Club Description

    Odyssey of the Mind (OM) 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.

    Students form groups of no less than five and no more than seven members. 

    OM groups work at home on their own time, outside of school hours. 

    Each group must have a parent coach.  There are training sessions sponsored by North Carolina OM, Eastern Region for the parent coaches (visit link).
