Erie Odyssey cover
Description It is an exciting time for our Erie School Odyssey of the Mind Teams. Two Erie Middle School teams and the Erie High School team have worked extremely hard for the past 7 months to earn an invitation to the World Finals, and we did it!
We have been brainstorming, building, revising and perfecting our problem solution throughout the school year. All three teams advanced through the regional tournament to the Colorado State Tournament, where we earned our spot in the next level. At the World Finals, we will be competing and learning with
some of the most creative students from all over the world!

For those of you who are not familiar with Odyssey of the Mind, it is an international educational program that provides
creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Students apply their creativity to
solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics.
Through solving these problems, the students learn lifelong skills such as working on a team, evaluating ideas, making
decisions and thinking “outside the box”. Through the use of creative problem-solving methods the students have fun
and gain self-confidence. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 30 other countries participate
in the program. If you would like to know more about Odyssey of the Mind please visit the national website:

The World Finals Competition is May 25 - May 28, 2016 at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. We’ve been working
hard to raise money, but in order for all three teams to go, we need to raise approximately $18,000 for travel expenses and tournament
fees. We are asking you to help us with a tax-deductible donation to the Erie Boosters,
please write Odyssey in the memo portion of your check and send checks to:
