Odyssey of the Mind
Advisor: Rose Lantz (email@example.com)
Description: The OM program promotes creative thinking and teamwork by challenging teams to solve problems through divergent means and is open to students in grades 6 through 8. Announcements for sign-ups are made in October, and the program runs until mid-March or April depending on competition results. The OM coach arranges dates and times of meetings; attendance is mandatory. Practice usually occurs after school and varies in length of time. OM teams frequently practice on weekends. Students and parents should be prepared to make a major commitment to this activity. Parent involvement is needed for the program.
