Odyssey of the Mind coaches and volunteers work hard all year to facilitate creative thinking – but that’s not the hardest part. All year they have to keep their creative ideas to themselves while the teams have all the fun! This competition is their chance to express themselves, solve a problem, and have fun doing so. And the best part – teams can participate with the coach as well.
