What is Outside Assistance
Outside Assistance(OA): when someone other than a team member suggests an idea or works on the teams solution in any way. Students learn along the journey of Odyssey of the Mind…….if someone else takes the trip for them, well, the students don’t learn anything. In Odyssey of the Mind, students compete with other students their age to keep things fair. If an adult or older student solves the problem, the competition is unfair. OA deprives student of the programs’ benefits!
