My 8 year old granddaughter recently sent me information related to a kids program she participated in. The program, called Odyssey of the Mind, is spread throughout our nation. The program helps young people learn how to build problem solving teams. Students learn to think outside the box. Each participant is able to contribute their own particular strength or talent to the problem solving process.
“Wall flower” children are able blossom into more confident and socially confident individuals. Odyssey Of The Mind looks like a valuable program on many levels for kids of all ages. My granddaughter says It is fun. Check out the website Odyssey of the Mind and follow the steps to watch the video to learn more.
In this article I have chosen to be uncharacteristically succinct allowing Odyssey Of The Mind to speak for itself.
If you have kids or grandkids, you might want to check it out.

An excellent program. Two of our children participated in Odyssey of the Mind under the guidance and inspiration of Judi Orr at Hudtloff Jr. High in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Hopefully this program is still in existence in the Clover Park School Dustrict.
