"Odyssey of the Mind" is an international program for the promotion of creative learning, tolerance and international understanding. Students are provided with a variety of opportunities to solve problems creatively. Such problems include the building of small operable vehicles and devices, the design of costumes and props as well as the presentation of it all in little performances. Thus, students develop the skills to meet new challenges and be part of a team.
