Students from every campus are participating on these various teams, with Durham Intermediate School having the most students participating. Twenty-nine students will represent the school on different Division 1 and 2 teams. In addition, there are four Division 3 (high school grades 9-12) teams, seven Division 2 teams (grades 6-8) and 10 Division 1 teams (grades K-5).
There is also a primary team, which is a non-competitive category for students between grades kindergarten and second who want some of the Odyssey experience, but not all of it. There's an estimated 150 students participating in Odyssey of the Mind in total this year.
The first big competition is the North Texas region tournament held at Carroll High School on Feb. 25. The full problem sets have been released by the National Odyssey of the Mind program. Carroll teams are expected to compete in all five problem types: Vehicular, Technical, Classics, Structural and Performance.
Sponsors this year are: King Insurance Agency, Jarrett Logistics, Hexpool Compounding, Musicmaker Conservatory, Zaniac After School STEM Enrichment Program and SAGT.
