Students put their brains to the test with Odyssey of the Mind tournament

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Students of all ages put their brains to the test for the Regional 12 Tournament for NY Odyssey of the Mind on Saturday.

Nearly seven hundred students from across New York State were challenged at the Broome-Tioga BOCES Center to solve a creative, open-ended problem.

One group performed an elaborate skit with costumes, acting and moving objects.

High school junior Dora Donacik has been participating for ten years and enjoys the experience.

“It’s so rewarding to start out the year with nothing and then see all of this take shape by the end of it and it’s amazing to see how far we can come,” she said.

The event includes students ranging from kindergarten to high school.

The winning teams at the event will advance to the state competition in the coming weeks, hosted by Binghamton University.
