HSGP has an Odyssey of the Mind After School Team!
The team meets on Sunday mornings @ 9:30 in the kids' play room at HCC. (Sometimes they spill over into the yard or the library.) Creative problem-solving takes space!
It isn't too late for your kids! Join us at the next OOTM team meeting this Sunday at 9:30 AM. (There will be a Sunday Speaker meeting at the same time, and the doors will open at 8:30 for that. On Sundays with no other event going on, the doors will open just before 9:30.)
Odyssey of the Mind incorporates the STEAM initiative providing challenges to students where the arts, math, science, engineering, and technology as well as writing skills are needed to solve the long-term problems. 21st Century Skills are reinforced while meeting Common Core Curriculum standards. Even NASA understands the connections for the future by sponsoring a problem every year.
