Creativity and Inventiveness Sparkle at Region 5 Odyssey of the Mind
Goshen High School performs Odd A Bot
On Saturday, March 4, 2017, seventy teams from local school districts in Orange and Dutchess Counties came together to compete in the regional Odyssey of the Mind tournament.
Odyssey of the Mind is an intellectual contest of creativity, inventiveness, mental acuity and elaboration. The purpose of the competition is to focus on creative problem-solving using a team approach. It is based on the concept that "mind games" can be played with as much enthusiasm and competitive spirit as athletic games.
The students solve a long-term problem chosen from one of five categories which included: Catch Us If You Can; Odd-a-Bot; Classics... It’s Time, OMER; Ready, Set, Balsa, Build! and To Be Continued: A Superhero Cliffhanger.
