Odyssey of the Mind

World Finals in Michigan

Did you know that York sent 4 teams to the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals? Two teams from Coastal Ridge, one from York Middle School, and one from York High School competed at OM Worlds, held at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI, from May 24 - 27.

At WF, over 800 teams competed from most of the states in the US, as well as from over 15 other countries.

This video* was made right after this team finished their performance, where they tested a balsa wood structure they built to see how much weight it would hold. It held 165 pounds, but got crushed when the next weights were added. That's why the team ends with "We crushed it!"

*This video does use first and last names. Express written permission was provided by the parents prior to their names being published.
