What Is OM

Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential. OM proves that students can have fun while they learn.

Our Mission

Odyssey of the Mind is a rigorous World-Wide program with a goal to teach and enhance skills relating to creative problem solving, teamwork, self confidence and taking a risk, failing and learning from it is OK...and doing it in a fun way.

Becoming part of the Odyssey of the Mind family is easy, especially this year.

 

With the state of the World right now who knows where things will be in this winter or next spring.  OM has looked at things with a creative problem solving mind and has come up with the perfect solution regardless if your school is happening in person or virtually.

 

We have developed two separate paths that each team can choose between depending on what is happening in your state, city and school....and the best part is that you can start down one path and easily change to the other should circumstances change for you.
