Odyssey of the Mind
(03/03/12) Crossroads School Houston came in fifth place at the Houston Region Odyssey of the Mind tournament and is headed for the State Competition in Houston. Odyssey of the Mind is a world wide creative problem solving competition that is comprised long term problem solving, spontaneous problem solving and style. The team of seven spent five months planning, building and rehearsing their long term solution for presentation at the tournament.
The team had to create and present a performance about a team of scientists on an expedition to uncover the cause of mysterious events. They had to select the location of the expedition from NASA Earth Observatory Photographs and had to collect two samples and report their findings. The performance also included a technical representation of the mysterious events, the appearance of actually traveling, and a team-created device that the scientists use on the expedition.
Congratulations Crossroads team members Itay Kadosh (not pictured), Elliot Newman, Justin Clark, Ian Hutton, Sasha Klein (not pictured),Hudson Hartzog, and Connor Finley.
