Georgia’s Philosophy


Georgia Odyssey of the Mind is dedicated to providing opportunities for children to work together to solve unusual and stimulating problems. We believe that creativity, persistence and cooperation needed to complete the Odyssey of the Mind problems will empower students to be more successful problem-solvers in their own lives, and in future problem-solving situations.

We are committed to the idea that all students who participate in Odyssey of the Mind are winners. We strive to make the training, problem-solving and tournaments as child-centered as possible. Sportsmanship, team cooperation, and risk-taking will be valued as part of the problem-solving experience.

Georgia Odyssey of the Mind supports the ideas of minimal adult intervention and no outside assistance. We will adhere to the coaching ethics outlined by the national Odyssey of the Mind Program.
