In addition to the long-term problems, both teams also had to participate in a spontaneous com- petition where they did not find out their task until seconds before they had to solve the puzzle. The spontaneous challenge is either a hands-on or verbal project and requires quick, analytical thinking and teamwork.

Kyle Dalton said they were amazed by the magnitude of the opening ceremonies. "The opening ceremonies were awesome," he said. "They even had pyrotechnics." All of this year's OMers said they want to exercise their creativ- ity in next year's OM competition, but the students moving on to high school do not know if they will be able to participate next year because Sussex Tech does not cur- rently have a team. "If parents or other coaches aren't involved, the kids miss out," Lori Dalton, "Scene from Above" coach, said. Dalton said she had a wonderful experience working with the stu- dents and was dazzled by their originality. "The kids are so creative," she said. "It is so amazing to watch them change and grow." The Sussex Academy students agreed that the most important thing they learned from O.M. was teamwork. "We really learned how to work together and how to be flexible," Clark said. Anyone involved in Odyssey of the Mind can attest unanimously that the discoveries made from OM last a lifetime.
