Odyssey of the Mind
Odyssey of the Mind is an extracurricular activity that involves taking a real-world problem and designing a solution using the principles of Design Thinking and Project-Based Learning. Teams are made up of 7 students and one or two parent coaches. Teams meet once per week beginning in late fall, and some weekend meetings are added as the competition nears in March. Students practice “spontaneous” problems during their meetings along with working on their solution presentation. Salem is excited to be taking two teams to the regional competition in Winston Salem in March, 2020.
