Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Fisher Middle School and Ewing High School Odyssey of the Mind teams placed 2nd and 1st in the Coastal Plains Regional tournament held in March which qualified both teams to participate in the state tournament. Both teams brought their ‘A’ game to the state tournament and Fisher Middle School brought home the 3rd place state trophy to the District. Congratulations!
