Welcome to the Odyssey of the Mind 2018 World Finals!

Tens of thousands of students from around the world have worked hard using their creativity and teamwork skills to create original solutions to our divergent problems. Approximately 850 teams will represent their area in the largest creative problem solving program in the world. Every team that solved a problem and presented their solution to an audience truly is a winner and should be proud of their successful creative journey!

This will be our 39th World Finals and the 10th time being hosted by Iowa State University and the Ames Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Best wishes to teams, coaches, and volunteers — have fun in Iowa! For those attending, keep an eye on this page for updates. For those enjoying from home, stay tuned as well to see pictures, live video feeds, and videos of all the World Finals fun.
