"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.
