MADAGASCAR: A Land Out of Time – Return to Treasure Island
Here’s the synopsis.

Madagascar is a place that has long fired the imagination of the adventurous traveler. The fourth largest island in the world has some of the planets most unusual and delightful wildlife – from the famous lemurs to brilliant chameleons to fascinating tortoises to migrating humpback whales. 
Madagascar is also home to a wonderful blending of cultures and ancient kingdoms. The Merina people for example, in the highlands of Madagascar, sailed to Madagascar hundreds of years ago from such far-flung places as the Indonesian islands and Malaysia. There is also Arabian, Chinese and continental black African blood to be found in some of Madagascar’s people.
This program explores the fascinating cultures and geography of this great island nation. We begin in the capital city of Antananarivo (called Tana), in the central highlands. From the right place, in the right light, this city is one of the most attractive capitals in the developing world. Brightly colored houses stacked up the hillsides with mauve jacarandas and purple bougainvillea against a dark blue sky. But Tana can also seem squalid and dangerous, with poverty, beggars and a rising crime rate. We’ll explore the huge central market district where it seems the entire population of 2 million people comes out on the weekend to buy and sell all things imaginable. From exotic fruits, vegetables, meats, handicrafts, antiques, and electronics – it’s all here and it’s one of the most interesting places to be in the country. 
Also fascinating is the rich history of European influence on Madagascar. This was the land of the “golden age of piracy,” which occurred from 1680 to 1730. More than 1000 pirates, such as the famous Capt. William Kidd, made Madagascar (and particularly the small adjacent island of St. Marie) a base of pirate operations in the Indian Ocean. Here they divided up their stolen treasures, enjoyed the fresh water and delicious fruits and vegetables, and reveled in the ample supplies of island rum and willing female partners for their amorous adventures. These meetings of pirates and the local people of course often produced children and today the blood of the people of St. Mary Island is 25% pirate. 
Come with me then to the fabulous island of Madagascar, to reveal its many exciting natural and cultural secrets. Explore the island of St. Mary (also known as Pirate Island) as I search for - and find - many artifacts and silver coin treasures, left behind by the infamous pirates of 300 years ago.

Parents, students, staff, and potential coaches are all invited!
Odyssey of the Mind is an international problem solving competition for student grades K through 12.  Teams of up to seven students solve one long-term problem (out of a selection of five different problems) and present their solution as part of an 8 minute performance at the competition.
OM is great for all students, especially those who want to improve their problem solving skills, utilize and stretch their creativity, and develop their teamwork skills.  Students join OM for many reasons, often because they enjoy stage/acting and/or designing/building things.
