Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems. They then bring their solutions to competition on the regional, state, and World level.

This year, our team participated in Problem 1, The Driver's test, Division II. In this problem, we built a vehicle using 2 different propulsion systems. We had to perform various tasks using the vehicle and present a script that included a "talking" GPS and a driver's test. We built a vehicle and used creativity to write a script that includes a story of "pre-teen" boy in love trying to master various activites such as giving a girl flowers, not rushing into things and going slow, apologizing and showering the girls with love.

The team consists of Neil Kothari, Shivam Gandhi, Philomena Lee, Vinay Mummareddy, Isabela Huckabee, John Castro, and Nandhitha Selvaraj. The team was coached by Neil's older sister - Nikki Kothari.

Our solution has now gotten into World Finals that are going to be held in Iowa State University, Ames, IA. The competition is from May 28 - June 1. It is a once in lifetime opportunity and a dream come true.  Some of us have been dreaming this for past 7 years.   

The cost of attending the world finals is upwards of $10,000 for our team and coach. This includes air tickets, cost of staying in Iowa for 4 days, food, shipping our props that are used in the script etc.  We cannot achieve this dream without fundraising from friends and family. We need your help. Any contribution will go a long way in helping us with our dream. Please help to make it a reality for us.

The team is committed to doing well at the World's competition.
