What others are saying...

Doing Odyssey of the Mind 2 years ago was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Being unaware of the 'Balsa wood' problem, after doing a lot of research & building various different structures, our team won the Regional round & moved on to the International Round. Poland was an enriching experience for me, learnt about different cultures & finally won the prestigious 'Omer's Award'. This could not have been achieved without our coach Bindu ma'am & the Odyssey team.

Odyssey of the Mind has given me a platform as a coach, coordinator, a parent and as a judge at World Finals. It's been a wonderful association with the team in this creative world of problem solving. My sincere thanks to Mr. Prabhat for giving this opportunity to me. This programme is the need of future problem solving.

I have attended Odyssey of the mind two times both in World Finals in 2014 as well in Eurofest 2016. It was an enriching and great learning experience for me. Solving problems and thinking out of the box were the two key features of this competition. Interacting with students from all over the globe and making friends was the best part of this program. Overall it was a good experience for me.

After participating in Odyssey of the Mind, I have come out of my comfort zone and I am able to think out of the box. I have been able to think creative with the help of them. I enjoy their problems as whatsoever they give to solve is always something new which you cant even imagine.
