Kentwood teams moving on to state competition in Odyssey of the Mind

By Sheila McGrath
Odyssey of the Mind teams from Discovery Elementary and Pinewood Middle School in Kentwood will move on to the state tournament after competing at the regional tournament recently hosted by Forest Hills Central High School.

In Odyssey of the Mind, teams of students work on creative problem solving in a competitive environment. Teams compete under one of several long term problems that is then performed before a panel of judges. Teams are also given a spontaneous problem that must be solved in a very short period of time.

All of the work to solve the long-term problem must be done by the students without any outside assistance from adults or people not on the team.

The State Tournament will be held at Davenport University on Saturday, April 16. The top teams from each problem and division will then advance to the World Finals held at Maryland University May 28-31.
