Odyssey of the Mind



I did Odyssey of the Mind for a year, and I never realized how much physics was involved in it. One of the requirements of Odyssey is to create a play that "solves" the problem that your team chooses. We had to make our own costumes, sets, and props, so we had to make sure that everything stayed in its place, and that everything moved/worked properly, which could be quite challenging at times. At the time, I didn't know how physics would apply to all of this, and having a deeper understanding of physics probably allows a team to be more creative with their sets. Also, there is often building involved in the spontaneous problems. Physics applies to everything in our world, but we often don't realize how having a deeper understanding of it can really change the way we approach problems.
