The Amity International School, Sector 46, participated in the Odyssey of Mind, often called the ODM, a creative problem-solving competition involving students from kindergarten till college. It requires the team members to work together at length to solve a predefined problem and present their solution at a competition. They also need to generate spontaneous solutions to a problem they have not seen before. All brainstorming, building, painting, sewing, and fixing are to be done by the team. The competition is held at two levels regional and International.
Under the able guidance of our respected and dynamic Principal Mrs. Arti Chopra, the school team, consisting of Jinesh Bothra, Yuvraj Jain, Rishabh Garg, Sonali Chauhan, Vedaansh Nagpal, Arsh Passey and Keshav Maheshwari, guided by their coach, Mrs. Seema Kaushik, participated in the Eurofest 2013, held in Berlin, Germany. The team participated in mixed team problem solving, where the problem was handed over to the participants in Germany, and required solving in three days. The partner teams hailed from Slovakia and Russia.
The students proved their mettle, securing the second position in both events to bring home the trophy and certificates. The event was notable not only for the prizes won but also for the international exposure it provided to young minds. The honorable Chairperson Ma?am, Dr. Mrs. Amita Chauhan was delighted at the achievement of her students, and blessed the participants.
