Thrice, Thrice, Thrice --- it is now the third time in a row (for the last three years) that Lincoln Park Academy is sending an Odyssey of the Mind Team to World Finals to be held May 28 - May 31 at Iowa State University located in Ames, Iowa, which is 30 minutes from Des Moines, and 3 hours from Kansas City, Minneapolis and Omaha.
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.
The Lincoln Park Academy Odyssey of the Mind Team’s excellent performance at the State Competition has earned them the honor of representing the state of Florida at the World Finals. The team of seven students is working hard to meet this challenge. Student team members: Hamza Razuman, Rachael Howard, Brenden Rouse, William Clarizio, Samantha Strong, Baylie Cainas, and Samreen Razuman.
