Who We Are


Colorado Odyssey has been a Chartered Association of Odyssey of the Mind since 1983 and is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. Odyssey of the Mind is an international extra-curricular educational program that teaches creative problem-solving and 21st century skills to students from kindergarten through college.  Teams of up to 7 members learn to think outside the box, work together to develop creative solutions to broadly defined problems, and present their solution in an 8 minute performance. Problems appeal to a wide array of students and 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. In addition, teams are rewarded for not just solving the problem, but for enhancing their solution with style. Teams also compete in an on-the-spot spontaneous problem as part of the competition.
