This weekend, one of our 1st place division winning teams is going to the Odyssey of the Mind State Championship.

Students include: Abbie Holtz (captain), Claire Houck, Malena Logan, Alexandra Pablo, Monet Franco, Jordi Ettinger, and Roger Gonzalez.

OM challenges students to solve complex problems through collaborative and creative methods. This year one of the problems included creating a structure made of balsa wood, no more than 8″ high and 18 ounces in weight. The structures were required to have removable housings for marbles. At the regional competition, this team of students built a structure that held 147 lbs. They were awarded 1stplace for their division!

We send our best wishes and prayers to this team and our volunteer parents as they compete in Riverside.
