Pennsbury School District celebrates 35th year in Odyssey of the Mind

This is a special year for the Pennsbury School District’s Odyssey of the Mind program, as they are celebrating the 35th anniversary of participating in this international problem-solving competition.

Over the years, well over a thousand students, coaches and parents have participated in the program.

All of these people have benefitted from the camaraderie and academic challenges the program has offered.

Pennsbury has also been very competitive.

The district has sent a team to the World Finals 31 out of the last 34 years. Accompanying this article is a picture of the high school and middle school teams that successfully competed in the Southeast PA competition, the Pennsylvania State competition, and the World competition held at Iowa State University this past Memorial Day weekend.

At the end of the competition they had a celebration that included Hawaiian leis and silly string!

Would you like to become involved with this exciting program?

Each year Odyssey of the Mind issues five creative problem-solving challenges to students of all ages.

These challenges focus on science, technology, engineering, math and the arts.

Students present the solution to these challenges within an eight-minute theatrical performance.

Follow their website at Pennsburyom.com for information about the program and when teams will be forming.
