Cook School Odyssey of the Mind team

LaGrange -

LaGRANGE РThe Marion C. Cook School Odyssey of the Mind team is hosting a spaghetti supper fund raiser from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 6, at the Milo Town Hall. The school need to raise $6,000  to participate at the 2011 World Finals at the University of Maryland. They placed second in Division 1 at the Maine State finals in March.
Dinner is by donation. A yard sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the LaGrange 4 Corners store. For more information, call 943-2196.

To be division 1, students must be in grades 3-5 and meet set academic standards. The team chose from 6 possible problems and decided to build an unhinged structure. The structure is made from balsa wood, must weigh 18 grams, and must have two sections that fold on a hinge to meet and become one structure. The goal is to build a structure that will hold a certain amount of weight. The team had to create a play based upon three hinged objects and the weight of those objects. They chose stamping out bullying as their theme. They did all of our work after school and on weekends.
