Utah Kids Embark on Odyssey of The Mind

"Think Out of the Box!"

For six months, seven children, ages 8-11, with a $145 budget, have been challenged to write and perform an 8-minute story about planet Earth, while simultaneously stacking tiny balsa wood structures designed to support more than 500 times their own weight.  This is what Odyssey of the Mind is all about.

After winning Utah's statewide competition, Team Stackable Structures from Park City's Weilenmann School of Discovery is on its way to the World Finals of ODYSSEY OF THE MIND at Iowa State University at the end of May.  Lucca, Declan, Sophia, Wesley, Amber and Ethan are excited to demonstrate their creative and engineering skills against more than 5,000 students from 25 different countries.  Now they're asking you for your support.

Your donation will help these aspiring scientists, engineers and designers solve problems, interact with international students and have the greatest week of their young lives. They've worked in and after school all year long "“ for a fun, academic pursuit. Won't you support their journey today?

Thank you for your support! All donations are most appreciated!!
