Odyssey of the Mind is off to World Finals!

Saturday, April 6th, 12 SBISD Odyssey of the Mind teams presented their solutions to this year’s problems in Waller, Texas.

Ridgecrest and Rummel Creek represented the Vehicle problem, “OMER to the Rescue Again”, while Wilchester, Spring Oaks MS and Stratford tossed their balsa wood structures, in “Structure Toss”. Terrace Elem., Memorial MS and Westchester MS and HS solved the Classical, “Leonardo’s Workshop ” problem, and Spring Forest competed in the Technical problem, “Hide In Plain Sight”. Last but not least, Spring Forest performed the humorous problem, “Opposites Distract”.

The top two teams in each problem and division were chosen to represent Texas and the USA at World Finals, May 22-26. The teams were amazing. SBISD is proud to have 4 teams representing us at World this year!
Terrace Elementary School placed first in the Classical problem with their solution about Leonardo Da Vince’s inventions.

Spring Forest MS placed first and Memorial MS placed second in the Humorous problem, “Opposites Distract”.
