Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving program for students K-12 and college. It provides teams with the opportunity to learn creative problem solving, teamwork, brainstorming, self-reliance, and respect for individual strengths -- unique, unforgettable experiences that will serve them in every aspect of their lives now and in the future.
Teams of five to seven students develop solutions to one of six Long Term Problems over several months, while practicing for a Spontaneous Problem. Teams, problems and competitions are organized into five divisions by age groups (Primary, I, II, III, IV). The primary division problem is a demonstration problem that is not judged competitively.
