Welcome to the Missouri Odyssey of the Mind Wiki. This Wiki is a resource for coaches and team members to find useful information related to the OotM. The Wiki contains information from sources like the Program Guide, the Virginia coaches guide, and Michael Bojanski. While we compiled this information to serve as a tool, your team must use the official Program Guide, the 2015-2016 Long Term Problems, and clarifications when working on your team solutions.
The Wiki is designed to answer questions through user-friendly searchable articles, not as one large document. Hyperlinks serve to take you to articles you are searching for. Search for articles and content in the upper right box. As a new coach, we know you will find the team formation, new coaches, long term, spontaneous, and style guides or examples of past teams' performances as helpful resources.
We commonly hear from new coaches that “I don't know what I don't know”. We've designed a short quiz for you to test your Odyssey of the Mind knowledge to show you what areas of OotM you might need to learn more about. After submitting your answer, you will see if you were correct or not. Each question/answer has an explanation and a link to a Wiki article for more information. Click this link to take the quiz.
Wikis are generally written collaboratively. However, content generation and editing on this wiki is restricted to the MO board and managed by J. Jones. If you have questions, please contact us.
