ODYSSEY OF THE MIND
Odyssey of the Mind needs coaches and a parent coordinator to help form teams (need someone to copy flyers, collect sign up sheets, etc.). We would like to have Aspen teams participate this year! The Regional tournament will be at Westlake High School. Students in 1st through 5th grade can participate.
We need adults to volunteer in order to participate in this wonderful program. If interested in coaching or co-coaching a team or helping out with organizing teams please contact Susan Fujimoto (email@example.com).
What is Odyssey of the Mind?
"It is an international educational program that provides creative problem solving opportunities for students from elementary through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program. "
