CDE Participates in Region 4 Odyssey of the Mind

Children show off their cardboard robot

For the first time in more than 10 years, Cairo-Durham Elementary sent two teams to the Region 4 Odyssey of the Mind competition held at Coxsackie-Athens CSD on Saturday, March 25, 2017. The CDE teams were made up of third and fourth grade students who showed a willingness to think outside the box.

The team that competed in the “Catch Us If You Can” problem—including Isobel Weinberger, Nicholas Olivett, Rachel Maggio, Michael Van Holsteyn, and Grace Snedeker—received high praise from the judges for their acting skills and energy.

The “Odd-a-Bot” team—made up of Kingston Czajkowski, Jonathen Saad, Zoe Vogel, Avery Amoroso, and Andrew Searing-Burke—came in third place in their division, blowing the judges away during their “spontaneous” performance.

Congratulations to all students who participated in this year’s competition, and to Ms. Loughran and Ms. Trunzo for getting the teams prepared!
