International Baccalaureate students make college’s Odyssey of the Mind debut

Thursday 28 May 2015

In May, International Baccalaureate students Diana Adamczyk, Janeria De Lorenzi, Anne Han and Aneta Pavliukevic represented the United Kingdom at the World Finals of the Odyssey of the Mind competition – held at Michigan State University, USA. The competition provided the opportunity for competitors to think divergently, problem solve and develop their critical thinking skills and was part of the students’ C.A.S (Creativity, Action and Service) requirements.

 The team tackled a variety of problem solving tasks over the two-day event, taking on competitors from Poland, Canada, China and the USA. They were the first United Kingdom team to appear at the event for fourteen years.

“It was a brilliant experience and we all really enjoyed being involved in the competition,” said Aneta (pictured,above). “The whole process of applying involved a lot of planning and research which was really fun as was the fundraising around college when we sold cakes. We wanted to do the college and the UK proud and it’s an experience we’ll never forget.”
