38 -CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 7 - March 13, 1997 Cape District students to compete in state Odyssey of Mind March 15 Delaware Creative Competi- tions will hold the state's 1997 Odyssey of the Mind (OM) finals at Smyrna High School on Satur- day, March 15 beginning at 8 a.m. There will be 59 students from the Cape Henlopen School Dis- trict competing on nine teams to earn a first place position and the opportunity to compete at the OM World Finals to be held at the Uni- versity of Maryland in College Park June 4-7. For the past 15 years, dedicated teachers and parents from districts throughout the state have enabled teams of creative students to par- ticipate in this worldwide prob- lem-s01ving program.

He decided that an ideal method of challenging his engineering students and simultaneously pro- moting creative thinking was to assign the design of some appara- tus capable of crossing the college lake. The limiting stipulation was that the cost of materials could not exceed $5. The results were so amazing that Micklus determined that similar tests of the imagina- tion could engender creative thinking skills in students of all ages. Thus, since 1979, he has an- nually conceived of five "prob- lems" that he modifies slightly for four different age groups which compete at local, regional and state levels and in several foreign countries to qualify for World Fi- Roth invites to apply for Sen.
