What is Odyssey of the Mind? Created by a professor at M.I.T in 1971, Odyssey of the Mind gives students many chances to problem solve, as well as create and hone collaboration skills. For forty years, schools all over the world have participated by solving spontaneous problems and presenting their solutions to one of 5 long-term problems in a competitive tournament setting. Students work in teams of 7 under the direction of two parent “coaches” who facilitate them through this process. Each year Welby Way sends 4 teams to compete at the regional, state and even world levels. Last year we had two teams compete at the World Finals in Lansing, Michigan!
