Odyssey of the Mind

Grades K-6

Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from Kindergarten through college. Students apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and world level. Last year 6 Wolftrap teams competed and one team achieved 3rd place in regional tournament!

Odyssey of the Mind program runs on volunteers and we are in need of coaches and assistant coaches.  If you are interested in coaching (and we will help you!) please
let us know.

The program runs from October/November through March (or April if the team advances!).

Congratulations to the 2013 teams:
