The Odyssey of the Mind team is going to the Finals. CCA’s middle school team has been working hard outside of school to participate in this important program. The team has 6 members Kaylee Kwan (6th grade), Philip Ngo (6th grade), Abbey Chan (7th grade), Raymond Mok (8th grade), Aidan Turng (8th grade), Andrew Cao (8th grade). We also had two CCS Alumni , Mr Marshall Lee and his daughter Anna Lee (9th grade) to help the team every week since last Sept. The team meets every Sat afternoon and sometimes on Sunday. The OM problem which the team picked is called “Omer To The Rescue Again”. The team needed to design a vehicle where at least one person could ride on it and able to assemble/disassemble it to fit into a small suit case. There are additional tasks they will need to do with the vehicle. They also need to come up with a skit to perform together with the vehicle.
The regional tournament happened last Sat (3/2/2019) and the team has advanced to North California State tournament on 3/30/2019 in Santa Rosa (Maria Carillo High School). If they received 1st or 2nd place in State tournament, they will advance to world final in Michigan State University between May 22 – May 25.
