Some of the best problem solvers and creative minds in the Amphitheater School District are set to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals in Iowa this week.

Two Painted Sky Elementary School teams, a Coronado K-8 team, a Prince Elementary team, and a Canyon del Oro High School team will represent the Amphitheater School District in Ames, Iowa May 28 through 31.

Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics.

Amphitheater students have had teams for the past 26 years.
