My team and I actively participated in Odyssey of the Mind, an international educational program that fosters creativity and problem-solving skills in students like us, enhancing our ability to think outside the box. The program emphasises teamwork, critical thinking, and innovation as students work together to solve open-ended problems.

This year, Odyssey of the Mind provided us with a set of long-term problems that required some bizarre ideas to solve. The problems range from technical challenges like building structures to artistic endeavours like creating a performance. We worked together on a budget assisted by many understanding people to develop solutions that are both unique and functional, using materials such as paper, wood, cotton, and even a second-hand bicycle.

In addition to the long-term problem, we also participated in a spontaneous problem, where we must think on our feet to solve a problem presented to us on the spot. This helped us to develop quick thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to work well under pressure.

Overall, Odyssey of the Mind provided an opportunity for us to develop valuable skills that benefitted us both in and out of the classroom, in all aspects of our lives, whether in our future careers or personal pursuits. It is an excellent program for students looking to expand their horizons and develop their creativity. It provides a fun and engaging way for students to work together and learn important life skills that will serve them well in the future.
