First at Eurofest

A Spring Woods High School student team took first recently at Odyssey of the Mind’s Eurofest international gathering, which was held in Berlin, Germany.

 Students Odalis Garcia, Emily Mitchell, Parker Blome, Richard Young, Adam Tutt, and Jeremy Jackson were invited to compete during the 2013 Odyssey of the Mind Eurofest, which included students from 18 countries and four continents.

In all, 110 student teams met at Eurofest. The Spring Woods High students worked all year preparing their solution to Odyssey of the Mind problem No. 5, titled "It's How You Look at It."

 Their creative solution included a spinning background, a student team created instrument called a tubaphone, and a librarian's dress made from pages of a book.

Eurofest differs from Odyssey of the Mind World Finals in that teams are grouped with two other countries to solve a problem. Despite the language barrier, Spring Woods High’s team created and performed a stunning performance with student teams from Moldavia and Russia.
