BINGHAMTON -- Hundreds of students from across the region had a chance to show off their problem-solving skills Saturday--on stage!
BOCES hosted the annual Odyssey of the Mind Tournament. Teams of students in K-12 have worked for months to create solutions to a given set of problems--and present them in a creative way to a panel of judges. Students performed the way they would design vehicles, even replicate ancient architecture.
"I just like it because you get to be creative and think outside the box. A lot of competitions are like, you have to do this, you have to do that. And this one is whatever you want to do-- it's up to you," said Valerie Walters, a 9th grade competitor from Vestal.
One winner from each age group of each problem will go on to compete in the state tournament March 23 at Binghamton University.
