Odyssey of the Mind (OM™) teaches students how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers. Imagine being faced with a problem that requires an original solution. It can be frightening. Now imagine not being afraid to solve that problem – that is what OM members learn. This skill and self-confidence will carry over to all areas of their lives. OM brings the classroom to life as students apply what they learn and combine it with their interests and passions to solve our unique open-ended problems.
Maryland and Washington D.C. Odyssey of the Mind spreads the mission and values of the Odyssey of the Mind program by working with teams in our area, encouraging creative thinking discovered through teamwork, problem solving, and much more!
