Odyssey of the Mind

What is Odyssey of the Mind?

Odyssey of the Mind is a journey into creative and critical thinking, where music, art and the humanities meet science, technology and engineering. Now for the more traditional definition….

The Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program whose mission is to provide creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Through solving open-ended problems, students develop creative-thinking skills that can be applied to real-life situations. Teams from throughout the U.S. and more than 20 other countries participate in the program.
