Odyssey of the Mind Teams

Odyssey of the Mind

ODYSSEY OF THE MIND is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program. For more information, check out the website: Odyssey of the Mind.

Quest currently has two classes dedicated to their Odyssey teams: a K-5 class and a 6-8/middle school class. Check them out on the schedule and if you have any questions feel free to contact the teacher/coach: Ginger Maghran at
