The mission of North Carolina Odyssey of the Mind is to provide a safe environment where students of all ages can develop and express their creative thinking skills and ideas through organized activities based on skills learned and developed in a curriculum based setting. Participants will develop skills in cooperation, self respect and self worth through hands on learning as they develop respect and appreciation for their team member ideas.
North Carolina Odyssey of the Mind is a non-profit member of the International Odyssey of the Mind, a creative problem solving program. With memberships coming primarily from schools and other community based organizations, student teams composed of Kindergarten through college solve problems through peer teams of 5-7 people. Each spring the teams come together to compete for the right to move to the International competition held at leading universities throughout the United States.
