Tournament of Minds is a competition where there are teams are 5-7 people. You can do more or less but you can only win things with 5-7 people. Last year Thorndon School entered a team of 7 people. This year Briar is in the consideration of making teams. At the event will undertake a spontaneous challenge. None of the teams will know what the challenge is, prior to them undertaking it. It is a short challenge, and the team will have to work together for success. They will be judged on how well they worked together as a team, their originality and various other contexts. Last weekend some of the people went to a workshop. First there were pelmanism’s that we had to solve. There were other various puzzles like making hats and describing pictures.
