Creativity is Music to our Ears

Danielle's team won 3rd place @ the Odyssey of the Mind tournament yesterday. There were 5 teams total and only 3 could move on to State. The State tourney will be April 18 @ WKU.

For those who do not know what Odyssey is:

The kids are given long term problems and it is their responsibility to get props, make a skit and solution to the problem that they are given. Her problem was "Shock Waves" and they had to build a structure out of 18grams of balsa wood. The team that built the structure that would hold the most weight, won. I believe the Odyssey record is something like 1,300 lbs (more or a little less). Her teams held 35lbs. Their skit was good as well.

I will post it as soon as I can, but not before they are out of the tourney so that there's "no cheating."
