Welcome to Missouri Odyssey of the Mind

Missouri Creative Achievements in Problem Solving (MOCAPS) is the proud sponsor of Odyssey of the Mind in Missouri. We are a non profit, section 501(c)(3) educational organization run entirely by volunteers.

Odyssey of the Mind
is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.
