Description: This international, not-for-profit organization teaches students to learn creative problem-solving methods while having fun in the process. Students learn how to identify challenges and to think creatively to solve those problems. The creative problem-solving process rewards thinking "outside of the box." Memberships are purchased by a school or community group and then teams compete at the regional level, and/or at the state/province/country level.

Creative thinking skills are often overlooked in school district curriculums. The Odyssey of the Mind program offers curriculum materials for classroom use in addition to being a national competition.
