Welcome to Muncy’s Odyssey of the Mind information place!
"Odyssey of the Mind (OM™) teaches students how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers. Imagine being faced with a problem that requires an original solution. It can be frightening. Now imagine not being afraid to solve that problem – that is what OM members learn. This skill and self-confidence will carry over to all areas of their lives. OM brings the classroom to life as students apply what they learn and combine it with their interests and passions to solve our unique open-ended problems. OM also emphasizes teamwork, budgeting, time management, public speaking, and so much more. This international program is designed to help students at all learning levels grow as individual learners, grow as team members, and to reach their full potential"
In Odysssy of the Mind (OM) the possibilities are endless, the ideas are priceless, the fun is never-ending, and the creativity is amazing! The OM program consists of teams from around the world who are challenged with using their problem-solving skills in very creative ways. Students who participate in OOTM select from problems that range from building structures that can withstand a certain amount of weight; to singing, dancing, and interpreting aspects of literary elements; to inventing vehicles with technical devices. The solutions to these problems are demonstrated in the most creative ways through the presentation of skits that are 8 minutes or less, in front of a live audience and judges.
