Students Prepare for First Odyssey of the Mind Regional Competition



GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb 17, 2014—Students in River City Scholars Charter Academy’s new Odyssey of the Mind club are preparing for their first regional competition on Saturday, Feb. 22.  Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that encourages creative problem-solving. 
The school’s two Odyssey teams, consisting of fourth and fifth graders, have been practicing for the competition since late November. This is a new program for the school, which is in its second year of operation. 
“I wanted to start Odyssey of the Mind because I love that it incorporated higher order thinking,” said the club’s coach and first-grade teacher Ahnna Sisco. “It gives the students a chance to use the skills that we are teaching in school and apply these strategies to real life situations.” Read the full article here:
