club, provided for sixth graders, will allow students to think and problem
solve. The Odyssey of the Mind is a
national program that teaches students to learn creative problem solving methods
while having fun in the process. By
tapping into creativity, and through encouraging imaginative paths to problem
solving, students learn skills that will provide them with the ability to solve
problems – great and small – for a lifetime. The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students how to think
divergently by providing open-ended problems that appeal to a wide range of
interests. After creating solutions
to problems provided by The Odyssey of the Mind, students will participate in
regional competitions held on Saturdays throughout the state and area. Participation in this club keeps students focused on the
Odyssey of the Mind competitions and problem solving from October to May.
