*WOULD YOUR ODYSSEY OF THE MIND TEAM LIKE TO EXPAND THEIR HORIZONS SOLVING SPONTANEOUS PROBLEMS?
*AS A COACH, WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET SOME NEW IDEAS FOR SPONTANEOUS PROBLEMS?
Then come to one of our Spontania - Mania events!
These events are optional, they are not mandatory for participating in the tournament. They are for fun and practice. All team members can participate, you do not have to pick 5 team members, unless you want to practice that way.
This is an opportunity for your team to practice Spontaneous problems with other coaches & teams! These are fun cooperative events where your team will provide one Hands-on spontaneous problem and have the opportunity to participate in approximately 10 problems in rotation.
PARTICPATING COACHES—each coach MUST register with a Hands-on spontaneous problem that you will run for other teams. You will supply the materials to run the problem for 10 teams. Bring printed copies of the problems for teams to take home with them. This is a fun practice session, so we won't be doing any "official" scoring. However, teams will appreciate unofficial scoring and feedback from the coaches running each problem.
Your team will have the opportunity to do a variety of problems with other coaches. If you want to rotate with your team to observe them then you must bring an assistant coach to run your problem station. Younger teams should plan on having 2 adults - one to run the problem and one to accompany the team through their rotations.
