DARIEN, Conn. -- The Middlesex Middle School team won first place in its division for its presentation in the Stackable Structure challenge portion of the 34th Annual Connecticut State Tournament for Odyssey of the Mind.
Winning first place in this international creative problem-solving program enables the team to, once again, compete in the upcoming World Finals taking place at Michigan State University in late May.
This is the third year in a row that a MMS team made it into the World Finals in the Stackable Structure challenge.
This team's 18-gram structure -- made up of only balsa wood and glue -- was able to support 850 pounds before breaking. It was a clean sweep, as the team also scored the highest in their division in the Spontaneous competition.
