The fourth grade Odyssey of the Mind team at Pacific Rim won the regional San Diego tournament and went on to compete at the State tournament held at UC Riverside in March. At State, they qualified for the World Finals of Odyssey of the Mind. They will compete at the end of May at Michigan State University against over 30 states and 25 other countries including China, Japan, Poland, Switzerland, Singapore and more!
Odyssey of the Mind is a critical and creative thinking competition comprised of a team of 5-7 students who spend months preparing to solve a problem in 8 minutes. There also is a short-term problem where kids are given a problem to solve (they may have to build a structure as a team or solve a verbal idea that is presented) and have to think on the spot. They are scored based on their ingenuity, creativity and teamwork. Thousand of teams compete but only the best of the best go on to the World Finals!
Pacific Rim takes pride in being a leader in Odyssey of the Mind competitions year after year. Our kids are proud to represent their school, the City of Carlsbad, their great state of California and the United States of America.
