Odyssey of the Mind was created by Dr. C. Samuel Micklus, Professor Emeritus at Rowan University in New Jersey. In 1978, 28 New Jersey schools participated in the very first creative problem-solving competition ever. “Dr. Sam” still develops all problems for the program, along with his son, Sammy, President of CCI.
Not-for-profit organizations administer the Odyssey of the Mind program in each participating U.S. state and country. Each organization is run by a local Association Director. The organizations are licensed by Creative Competitions, Inc. (CCI), which provides all of the problems and materials necessary to run training sessions and tournaments.
Odyssey of the Mind-India is a group of enthusiastic all-volunteer who firmly believe that this program offers something unique for your children. We believe that they will learn teamwork, creative problem solving, divergent thinking, persistence, practical skills, and many other abilities through participating in this unique program ‘Odyssey of the Mind’.
OM India firmly believes that creative minds can make the country reach the heights and Creativity can be developed….
