The Williams Elementary School Odyssey of the Mind Team is celebrating its trip to the Odyssey World Finals in Ames, Iowa May 23-26. The kids did a fantastic job with their Mockumentary about The Hobbit and had an experience they’re not likely to forget.
Their days in Iowa were filled with learning: about NASA projects, at the creativity festival, watching other teams, walking around a large college campus, and through exposure to many cultures. The kids traded pins and interacted with people from all over the country and around the world–there were more than 800 teams including those from 14 other countries.
The team is incredibly grateful for the support of the RSU 18 administration, the community, and their parents. There would not have been a trip without their help!
