Odyssey of the Mind
2010 World Competition
The 2010 5th Grade Team Placed 29th at World Competition
Sarasota Christian School's experienced 5th grade team won 1st place at the State Competition and 29th at the World Competition. Children in Odyssey of the Mind use their creativity and problem-solving skills to create solutions to problems that they work on for about six months. It is completely up to the children to come up with ideas, engineer technical features, make costumes and props, and present their interpretation of the answer to a highly complex problem.
The 2010 7th Grade Team Placed 7th at World Competition
This year, Sarasota Christian School's team of veteran 7th graders pulled off an amazing three-peat performance at the state competition. They placed 1st in the State of Florida for the 2nd year in a row and 7th in the World Competition. The 7th grade solved a problem written and created by NASA.
Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things;
let this be known to all the world. Isaiah 12:5
