at State Odyssey of the Mind Event
Wildwood Elementary School 4th and 5th grade students Colby Carlson, Blanca Hidalgo, Gregory Keil, Haley Kumanski, Rene Reyes, and Cynthia Williams competed the weekend of April 4-6 in Brentwood, CA (near Livermore) under the supervision of advisor, Mr. Dave Metheny, 5th grade teacher at Wildwood. The overall results for the Wildwood Team were 6th place in the State overall for Division I. That is out of 13 statewide teams and fantastic for the District’s second year of participation. The actual assigned problem for them to solve, independent of any adult assistance, is called The Stackable Structure (the problem and breakdown of the scores/results that make up the overall 6th place final score are listed below).
Problem: The Stackable Structure (Divisions I, II, III & IV)
- Style: 2nd place
- Weight: 3rd place
- Long Term: 3rd place (a score of the team's long-term solution)
Alignment to STEM and Common Core: Odyssey of the Mind provides an extra-curricular activity for students that is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and it requires students to actively engage in order to find its solution. Throughout the problem solving process, Odyssey of the Mind students learn STEM concepts by assessing the composition and strength of materials, designing vehicles and devices, engineering structures, sets and backdrops, and calculating scores, geometry and physics. Because students are working in a project-based environment where they solve a problem from a multi-disciplinary approach, they incorporate science, technology, engineering and math into the process. Odyssey of the Mind problems, from technical to classics, structural to performance, provide a creative and innovative way to problem solve while applying STEM concepts that students have learned.
