Pennsylvania Odyssey of the Mind - Creativity Unlimited in PA

We cross state lines for our biggest episode ever! Coaches Doug MacConnell and Justin Sulsky join us with several of their fourth and fifth grade OMers from the Long Beach Public Schools in New York. 

Mr. Mac and Mr. Sulsky discuss how they started coaching teams a few years ago – coming in with no past Odyssey experience – and worked their way to bring teams to World Finals both in-person, and virtually this year. Their team members jump in with stories and strategies from creating their solutions. And even the district's assistant superintendent, Dr. Paul Romanelli, was on the call to lend his support!

Our conversation emphasizes how an Odyssey of the Mind team is like a family. The young OMers discuss how they are using their Odyssey skills and teamwork to help their community with an Odyssey Angels project. As Mr. Sulsky says, "I think that global issues like racism and the pandemic, only prove more about why we need to nurture the talents of our young kids."
