For parents interested in the quality of education here in the Asheville area
please note the happy news that four (4) local schools have made it to the finals of Odyssey of the Mind.
Not only is this a very laudable accomplishment, but you may gather from the expressions on their faces, the teams seem also to find the experience worth their time and energy. (As a former schoolteacher and guidance counselor, I am totally delighted.)
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that "provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college.
Participants work in teams and members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics."
The schools traveling to the World competition include:
- Pisgah Elementary
- Valley Springs Middle School
- T.C. Roberson
- North Buncombe High School
CONGRATULATIONS to these Asheville area students who have worked together to examine problems and to identify the real challenge without limiting the possible solutions and their potential success.
...an excellent example ...would you agree?
