NE’s Odyssey of the Mind Team Shines at States

Congratulations to the Northeast Odyssey of the Mind team on placing 5th out of 17 teams in Division 1 in the Connecticut State Finals held this past Saturday, March 21, at Southern Connecticut State University.

The team’s problem, “Runaway Train,” was to build a vehicle, tracks, and find a way for the vehicle to go from station to station, overcoming five obstacles. The team had eight minutes in the competition to put the track together and perform a story explaining why the vehicle is going from station to station.

Team members are:  Sam Engel, Andrew Kraemer, Cayla Meek, Erin Pacifico, Owen Van Dusen, Laura Wei and Sebastian Zucker-Malone, with coaches Anne and Mark Engel and Suzanne Pacifico.
