Odyssey of the Mind
Congratulations to the Odyssey of the Mind Teams! All Odyssey of the Mind teams did a great job! Their best performance was to the judges! The balsa wood structure, "Lose Your Marbles" received 1st Place and held 875 pounds! This was more weight than all of the other entries, even high school! There was only one more 5 pound weight left on site when the structure finally crushed! "Pandora's Box" received 2nd place as Hope saved the day. "Silent Movie" received 3rd, though the critics raved. The vehicle problem, "Runaway Train" didn't place, but the judges loved their humorous spin on history.
