Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving program for students K-12 and college. It provides teams with the opportunity to learn creative problem solving, teamwork, brainstorming, self-reliance, and respect for individual strengths -- unique, unforgettable experiences that will serve them in every aspect of their lives now and in the future.

Teams of five to seven students develop solutions to one of six Long Term Problems over several months, while practicing for a Spontaneous Problem. Teams, problems and competitions are organized into five divisions by age groups (Primary, I, II, III, IV). The primary division problem is a demonstration problem that is not judged competitively.

In the Long Term Problem teams develop a theatrical and engineering solution to a specific situational problem over several months. Just as much fun, are the Spontaneous Problems, where the students develop brainstorming skills to solve problems given at the competition.

In Florida we have Regional competitions where teams advance to State Finals. Top teams from the State Finals go on to the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals.

Florida Odyssey of the Mind is made possible by the generous contributions of Volunteers, Parents, Teachers, Contributors and Sponsors. Volunteers serve as Coaches, Coordinators, Judges, Tournament Assistants, Trainers, Problem Captains and Board Members.
