"It goes without saying that a child is impacted creatively in Odyssey.
They learn to ask the questions not asked by others. When you take the word 'no' out of the equation and instead say, “I didn’t say you couldn’t,'
it unlocks a part of the brain begging to be heard."
— Lindsay Elliott, third-grade teacher at Sweetwater Episcopal Academy in Longwood, from her must-read Odyssey of the Mind: Creativity in the Classroom blog post
Odyssey of the Mind 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 reinterpreting literary classics.
They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state and world level.
Thousands of teams from around the U.S. and about 25 other countries participate.

Congratulations, 2016 World Finalists!
Congratulations to the students from the University of Florida, who finished FIRST in Problem 3 Division IV at the World Finals! Although another team placed higher in Long Term and Style, the UF students knocked Spontaneous out of the park, scoring almost 30 raw points higher than the next-best Spontaneous team. The lesson to all teams: SPONTANEOUS MATTERS!
Other TOP 10 FINISHERS at the 2016 World Finals finishers were Annunciation Catholic Academy, sixth in P5 DI; Lee MS, eighth in P5 DII; and Millennium MS, 10th in P3 DII.
Also making outstanding showings at Worlds were Seminole HS, 12th in P4 III; Chisholm ES, 15th in P2 DI; Princeton ES, 15th in P4 DI; Seminole HS, 23rd in P2 DIII; and Thornebrooke ES, 27th in P1 DI.
