Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program. 2018-19 is Cider Mill's 4rd year of participating in the program, we are excited to build on our performance last year when we had 8 teams competing and one of our teams made it to Worlds!
Watch the Video of one of our 2016 teams in action below.
