Odyssey of the Mind

The Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through university. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition at the national and then international level. Thousands of teams from about 25 countries participate in the programme each year.

The Odyssey of the Mind Singapore is the association in charge of promoting the Odyssey of the Mind Programme in Singapore. The association organizes the National Competition and leads the Singapore contingent at the World Finals. Mr Arene Koh is the current Association Director (2019 – to date).

This programme relies largely on volunteers. We cordially invite all former participants, coaches, parents and anyone else who believes in the importance of the creative development of our youths, to come back as a volunteer. In particular, we are looking for judges and volunteers for the national competition. Registration for 2019 Odyssey of the Mind Nationals is now open. We look forward to seeing you at our National Competition.
