In the 2021-2022 season, we are hosting Spontania-Mania at the Willow Creek Center at 1026 Mohr Lane, Concord, CA. The following description provides an example of how Spontania-Maina works.
This is an optional event provided by Odyssey of the Mind to help train the team on how to solve Spontaneous problems. Each team comes with Spontaneous problems, including materials enough for 11 teams. We provide 12 stations (one for each team).
The teams then go to each station to experience solving the spontaneous problem.
You can purchase books on Spontaneous problems from the Odyssey of the Mind national website HERE.
For Divisions I-III
Each session can have up to 12 teams. Registration is first-come - first-served. To assist we will provide a list of curated problems from which to choose. The emphasis is on hands-on and combo problems.
There was a cost of $20 per team to cover the cost of building rental and be paid via Paypal. Please pay in advance of attending the session.
When you register, you MUST indicate the session you plan to attend. We will exchange emails to select from among several problems. You and your team are then responsible for creating packets for 11 teams to be able to execute the problem. We will also agree on the location within Willow Creek that best accommodates your problem. (i.e.: table/chairs, 6’ x 6’ floor space, need a wall, etc.). This assures that we can assign you to a station with adequate space. REGISTRATION CANNOT BE CONFIRMED WITHOUT THESE DETAILS!
This is not a spectator event so we asked that students be dropped off and parents return for pick up at the end of the two hours.
