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.

The primary objectives and purposes :

  1. Implement, sponsor, and regulate the Odyssey of the Mind Program tournaments within northern California in accordance with the guidelines of Odyssey of the Mind
