Winners in Odyssey of Mind
KRMs Appearance at a Global Platform
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational programme which aims at involving students of different age groups in solving problems and conducting presentations in a creative manner. After 2 gold medals at the Odyssey at regionals, two teams of students of K R Mangalam World School, Gurugram were invited for the Odyssey of the Mind, Deutschland, Eurofest being held in Germany from April 27th to May 2nd 2018. The Eurofest commenced with a grand opening ceremony where each country cheered and introduced itself to the other participants. This was followed by the long term problems solving and the spontaneous problem solving. The students simultaneously worked on mixed team problems for which each team was clubbed with teams of two other countries.It is indeed a proud moment as the Division 3 team of students of K.R. Mangalam World School, Gurugram bagged the First position at the Odyssey of Mind, EUROFEST 2018.Our students teamed up with the students from Russia and Poland. Inspite of the language barriers, the students were able to work as a team and were able to solve the mixed team problems and present it before the judges. The problems given to the students were to create a circus breaking the stereo-type and including cultural facts about the three countries involved.
The presentation was quite creative as well as innovative. Meeting the expectations of the judges with limited resource in just a matter of few hours paved the way of success for our students. The experience was quite enriching and kudos to the entire team for making a mark on a global platform..
