Odyssey of the Mind Team Advances to State Competition
Posted 03/11/2016 08:42AM

One of Charlotte Christian School's middle school Odyssey of the Mind teams recently won second place in Division II at the North Carolina Regional Competition and will now advance to the Odyssey of the Mind state competition scheduled for Saturday, April 2 at Wingate University.  Two teams competed from Charlotte Christian, both tackling different science and engineering problems.  

Odyssey of the Mind is a national program that encourages students grades kindergarten through college to engage in problem-solving skills.  Teams compete at different levels based on grade and can choose one of six problems to solve in hopes of devising the most creative and workable solution.  

Charlotte Christian's winning team accepted the challenge of "No Cycle Recycle," which was building a vehicle that would recycle and move with pedals for propulsion.  A total of 31 teams were selected to advance to the state competition.  Teams that place in first or second in their division at the state level will then advance to the Odyssey of the Mind World Competition.

The Charlotte Christian team's faculty advisor is Mrs. Kim Greene, middle school STEM coordinator.  Team members are: 

Cooked Salmon:
Problem 4, Division 2
   Greg Cherry
   Andrew Embrey
