WELCOME TO ODYSSEY OF THE MIND!
Will we travel through time? Build a robot? Develop an art program for autistic children? Build a balsa structure that will hold an elephant? Perform an original story – written by you? Who knows!
We will learn how to work on a team, develop and maintain a schedule, brainstorm, practice reverse engineering, develop a cost sheet and plan, design, build, and trouble-shoot a project.
This is an international program with regional competition starting in February. Therefore, this is a YEAR-LONG (2 semester) commitment. We will follow the rules for competition. Whether we compete, will be up to the families of the students that take the class. 100% of the class must agree to compete or we will NOT compete.
Please consider these commitments seriously when signing up.
Here’s a little more info:
