Odyssey of the Mind (OotM) is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Students use their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics.
The teams demonstrate their solutions, in the form of an 8-minute skit, to judges and the public at competitions on the regional, state, and world level. Teams form in October, practice throughout the winter, and then the first competition occurs in the beginning of March. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and 25 other countries participate in the program.
