Odyssey students participate in sixth annual Spontaneous Night

On January 13, members of the district’s Odyssey of the Mind teams participated in the sixth annual Spontaneous Night. More than 65 Omers and their coaches enjoyed pizza and then creatively solved problems for the rest of the night.

A record number of teams – 11 in total – will compete in the Regional Competition at Orange-Ulster BOCES March 4.

In addition to practicing spontaneous problems, teams are hard at work on their long term solutions. Each team must present an eight minute skit that solves a variety of technical and creative challenges. Teams placing first will advance to States held at SUNY Binghamton in April.

Odyssey of the Mind students work together to create a structure out of sticks.
