ROSWELL, Ga. — The Queen of Angels Odyssey of the Mind third to fifth grade team placed seventh out of 56 teams in the World Finals last week in East Lansing, Michigan. Odyssey of the Mind is an annual competition where schools compete against one another using creative problem-solving skills.
Each year, Odyssey of the Mind puts out five different problems where teams must accomplish specific tasks while performing a dramatic skit. After preparing the skit for months, teams perform the eight-minute skit at the world competition against domestic and international teams. Teams also compete in a spontaneous problem after judges give them a surprise task to perform as a team.
In addition to the competition, the Queen of Angels students also participated in pin-trading, which allows them to interact with students from around the world.
