Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving competition for students from grades K-12 to college. Through solving open-ended problems, students develop teamwork, creativity, and problem-solving skills that will last a lifetime--all this while having fun in the process! 

Odyssey of the Mind focuses on:

  • Learning
  • Self Confidence
  • Problem Solving
  • Thinking
  • Innovation 
  • Teamwork
  • Ideas  
  • Excitement     
  • Originality     
  • Exploration     
  • Decision-making      
  • Creativity 


Glenview Odyssey of the Mind groups start in the fall (September or October) and continues until the regional competition which occurs late February or early March.  Typically, teams meet once a week for one to one and a half hours at Glenview after school or early evening.  Once the team has generated enough thoughts on their long term solution, then they start to build props at weekend work parties at parents' houses.  Parental involvement is an important part of the process.
