Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem solving opportunities for students. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They bring their solutions to competition on the local, State and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and 25 other countries participate in the program. It has been a wonderful opportunity for Windsor students and for the last three years we have had teams compete at the State and World Level.
