Mission Statement

NorCal Mission The mission of NorCal Odyssey of the Mind is to administer, promote, and execute the guidelines, objectives, and rules of the Odyssey of the Mind program. The NorCal OM Association follows the guidelines set in the state by our bylaws, policies, and procedures. The organization is here for the support and guidance of the association members, volunteers, and students within the Odyssey of the Mind program.


International Mission
The International mission of Odyssey of the Mind is to provide creative problem solving opportunities for everyone and to foster original and divergent thinking. Through the Odyssey of the Mind program, coaches, parents, judges, and volunteers promote creativity by challenging teams to solve divergent problems, that is, those with more than one solution. By working in teams, participants learn teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, the appreciation and understanding of divergent views, and that a group can be a powerful thinking force. Students who participate develop a sense of self-respect and respect for others through development of their solutions, and through preparatory activities such as brainstorming and role-playing.

While the ultimate goal for most teams is to present their problem solutions in official competitions, this is not a requirement of participation. The purpose of the program is to provide students with an exciting learning experience that promises to be challenging and fun.
