SVOM Competition

Buscher Middle School

You know how much I love unique events.  Our next journey is to San Jose for a VERY unique event.  We’ll serving up hot coffee, cocoa, and pastries in the morning at this years SVOM Competition. 

So, what is the SVOM?  It’s the regional chapter of the international creativity competition known as Odyssey of the Mind.   It’s is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Kids 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.  Did you know that coffee helps stimulate the mind and upports memory?  Just saying…
