Odyssey of The Mind
The students of K.R. MANGALAM WORLD SCHOOL, GURUGRAM participated in the Odyssey of the Mind, an Inter school creative problem solving competition where our school competed with around eight teams of Delhi-NCR.
Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving program involving students who work in teams. The students as team members worked together at length to solve a predefined long-term problem and presented their solution to the problem in the competition. They also participated in the spontaneous showcasing of skills by generating solutions to a problem they have not seen before. It included activities like theatrical performance, construction and design, practical applications of science and much more.
It’s a proud moment for KRM that three of our teams won two Gold medals and one Silver medal. Two teams (Senior and Junior) have also qualified for Euro fest International level to be held in Berlin, Germany. Odyssey of the Mind (OOTM) is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Creative Problem Solving as a skill was nurtured and developed in students through this competition which indeed was the motto of the participation. While a conventional education is important, learning to solve problems creatively and confidently gave our students an important edge in their education and career goals.
