From HQ on 9/25/2019
Odyssey of the Mind HQ has become aware of someone who is posing as an expert in spontaneous problem solving, under the name “Spont Master.” This person, who is not approved or accredited by Odyssey of the Mind, is trying to get schools to pay a hefty fee for his services. Teams are free to do as they wish but we DO NOT recommend engaging his services.
If your team would like to gain skills in spontaneous please visit this SoCal site or regional sites for tips. HQ also has spontaneous kits available for purchase if your team is looking for great practice problems that are prepped are ready to go. Additionally, be sure to check out your regional calendar to see when a spontaneous event will be happening in your area.
Be creative. Practice. Have FUN!
