Students Compete in Odyssey of the Mind World Finals
Two Skaneateles Central School District placed in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals at Michigan State University last week!
Team St. Claire/Kowalski took fourth place with a balsa wood structure that held 485 pounds, while Team Brooks/Bringas came in fifth place! Team Barnes/Moro and Team Viashampayan also finished in the top half of the competition teams.
Teams traveled from across the United States, as well as Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, South Korea, China, Japan and beyond. More than 50 teams tried to tackle each of the problems assigned by Odyssey judges.
“We are extremely grateful to the greater Skaneateles community for their support,” Odyssey advisor Ellen Wolford said. “Without the local businesses, the Skaneateles Education Foundation, and our family and friends, this experience of a lifetime would not have been possible. The Odyssey teams and coaches are much appreciative of the donations and generosity of all.“
