Odyssey of the Mind


UPDATE – In view of the uncertainties over the development of the COVID-19, the Organising Committee had to make the difficult and sad decision to cancel the OOTM 2020 National Finals scheduled for 3-4 April. Alternative arrangements have been made with teams to present the solutions to their LTPs. Team members should approach their coach and/or school coordinator for further instructions. 

We would like to invite all schools/JCs to take part in the Odyssey of the Mind National Competition held on 3-4 April 2020 at ACS (Independent), 121 Dover Road, Singapore 139650! More information on registration can be found on the ‘National Competition 2020′ tab.

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. Please register your interest by submitting the registration form for the 2020 Odyssey of the Mind Nationals. We look forward to seeing you at our National Competition.
