REGIONAL ODYSSEY OF THE MIND TOURNAMENT!!
March 2, 2019
 
Our Odyssey of the Mind Teams have been working hard all season on complex problems that require teamwork, problem solving, art and engineering skills.  If you are curious about the Odyssey program or just want to come support our students, please see below for details regarding where, when and what they will be performing.  
 
A huge thank you to our Odyssey of the Mind coaches who dedicated countless hours of their time this season to fostering the creativity and "out of the box" thinking that this program is built upon!
 
8:10am El Dorado Middle School MUR 
(Coach Amala Senarath's team: Senulya Senarath, Raegan Berger, Kai Perreira, Marcus Zee, Elena Carcamo, Brianna Pilon, and Madison Lowney) 
Performing Problem 4:  Structure Toss - Teams must strategize risk for points and “toss” their structures in this year’s problem-turned-carnival. They will use a device to propel the structure in a carnival game. If it travels in the air it gets higher score! Once the structure has been successfully tossed, it can be tested for strength. A carnival barker character will entice other characters to join the fun during a performance that incorporates testing the structure’s strength with creative games of skill and chance.
 
9:00am Concord High School Small Gym
(Coach Katie Drynkin's team: Andrew Drynkin, Landon Vicknair, Ryan Dent, Julia Dent, Michael Moheb, and Audrina Gonsalves)
Performing Problem 2:    Hide in Plain Sight - Teams take a cue from nature in this problem where they create and build a team-made mechanical creature that hides in plain sight. The creature will change its appearance three times to avoid being detected by a Searcher Character trying to find it. The way the creature changes will be different each time! The team will create and present a performance where its creature gets into – or out of – various situations using this resourceful skill. In the end the creature will surprise everyone by changing its appearance a final time and reveal its true self.
 
2:10pm Concord High School Room 510
(Coach Elizabeth Schwartz and Faith McSherry's team:  Ryder Schwartz, Alex McSherry, Hannah Laverick, Paiton Thompson, Andrew Harrell, Sadie Vicknair, and Shreya Dey)
Performing Primary Problem (Grades K-2):  Museum Makers - Kids can see the extraordinary in the ordinary. Now they will use that ability to create their own museum! The team will create and present an original museum and its exhibits. During the performance, the team will reveal three creative displays that explain the theme of the museum and show off team-made items. A tour guide will take audiences on a journey through the museum to meet a humorous artist and a curator.
