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. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.

The Fort Pierce Central High School team won second place at the State competition last Saturday at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida. They will now compete in the World Finals from May 20-23, 2015 at Michigan State University.

Over 800 teams from around the world will compete in the 36th Odyssey of the Mind World Finals. The competition emphasizes creativity and teamwork and has grown into the largest international creative problem-solving competition worldwide.

Best wishes to the FPC Odyssey of the Mind team — have fun in Michigan!
