BEYOND THE BOX
"Never say you can't. Say you can but it will be difficult"
- Dr. Sam
This year at Sapna, we have decided to join the OMers of the World! Meaning we have 3 teams in the local Odyssey of the Mind tournament this year competing in February. What is Odyssey of the Mind? Essentially, it is a creativity competition with the goal of teaching kids how to develop and use their own creativity to become problem-solvers.
Ever since volunteering with the tournament in 2009, Coach J and I have been working to instill a sense of curiosity and creativity in every kid (and person for that matter!) we meet. So this year, we decided to join the OMers of the World and create a team!
This past weekend, we had the opportunity to take 17 learners to the Construction Workshop at River City Science Academy. Kids learned to work with a variety of different tools and materials. this knowledge will help them when they start to construct their sets for their long term problem.
To learn more about this amazing organization and the great work that they do to create leaders, collaborators, and problem-solvers, please visit their website. If you would like to help out with any of our OM teams or if you would like to volunteer to help before or during the tournament, please let me know.
