GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — Grand Canyon School sent four teams to the Northern Arizona Regional Odyssey of the Mind competition March 4, with two teams progressing to the Arizona State Competition April 1.
Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving program for students worldwide from kindergarten through college. For several months, students in teams of seven work to create a performance based on a chosen problem. Without any outside assistance, these teams create a script, design a backdrop and props, make costumes, and perform their eight-minute performance at three levels of competition. If the team wins regionals, they compete at state. If they win at state, they progress to the world finals, where teams from over 20 countries and all 50 U.S. states compete for first place. This final level of competition takes place over several days and gives students the opportunity to meet other kids from all over the world.
