Odyssey teams advance to state finals

Eighteen student teams from schools in Rensselaer, Columbia and Greene counties advanced to the state Odyssey of the Mind tournament in Binghamton on April 11. They were selected from 106 teams competing in the Region Four Odyssey of the Mind Tournament coordinated by Questar III at Algonquin Middle School in Averill Park.

Teams from Ichabod Crane, Averill Park, Germantown, Brunswick, Coxsackie-Athens, Troy, East Greenbush, Hoosic Valley, and Rensselaer finished in first place.

Since 1978, Odyssey of the Mind has been an international educational program where students apply their imagination and ingenuity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics.
