Teams of students select a problem, create a solution, then present their solution in a competition. By working in teams, participants learn to appreciate and understand others and that a group is a more powerful thinking force than an individual. We are looking for interested students to participate, as well as interested parents to coach student teams. Please come join us to learn more about the opportunity! You can find more information about the program ahead of the meeting here: https://www.odysseyofthemind.com/learn-more/. If you have any questions, please email Dina Warshavsky : dusya@hotmail.com.
