On Saturday, February 24, 2018, Assumption sent four teams to the Odyssey of the Mind Regional Competition in Westlake Village, CA. Odyssey of the Mind is a challenging problem solving competition that requires critical thinking and creativity. Teams are given four months to solve one of the problems and are also given a spontaneous problem to solve at the competition.
It is highly competitive and pushes students to work collaboratively and to apply higher order thinking skills. All of Assumption’s teams ranked in the top ten. One of the seventh grade teams took first place and is on to the state competition at UC Riverside in March.
