Colonial Middle School Students Advance to Odyssey of the Mind World Championships
Seven Colonial Middle School students have teamed to represent Pennsylvania in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals in Iowa. The team placed first in the "Aesop Gone Viral" problem at the state competition in early April 2016. The team, coached by Michelle Farbstein, placed first in both the long-term problem solving and spontaneous problem solving portions of the competition. Traveling to Iowa for Worlds can cost a team upwards of ~$8,000 for travel, room, and board. 2 Sides Equal was so proud of the team's problem-solving skills of a fable gone "viral" that we helped the team out with a donation of $1,500 - allowing the whole team to travel to and from. Let's wish them good luck in Iowa!
