Sacred Heart School wins Silver & Gold at the 2019 Odyssey Of The Mind Provincials
 
The Odyssey Of The Mind Provincial Championships were held in Coquitlam this year and Sacred Heart School sent two teams to compete in this creative problem solving competition. A grade 4/5 team won silver for their performance on Opposites Distract, and a Grade 4-7 team completed a balsa wood structure problem called Structure Toss and brought home the gold. Their structure, a 15 gram 8" high balsa structure held 130lbs before breaking and that was after it had already been tossed and hit the ground in their carnival themed game. Their raw scores were excellent and they worked really well as a team. 
 
        
 
Congratulations to all the students who participated this year, and thank you to Lisa Nykoluk,  the parent organizer of the Odyssey club at Sacred Heart, and to all the parents who supported this great endeavor.

What is Odyssey of the Mind?

Odyssey of the Mind is a program for students that encourages creative thinking, team work and problem solving skills in a fun and friendly way.

Teams of 5-7 students get half a year to solve a problem and then present their solution at a tournament. At the tournament they are judged on their solution, the style of their presentation, and on how well they solve a problem presented to them on that day.

There is no one right answer, judges provide teams with feedback and reward them for creativity, quick thinking, and style in their solutions.

Teams usually work to solve their problems outside the regular school day with a parent acting as the team's coach.
