OotM is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students. PASD offers this program at the elementary and middle schools. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. OotM develops critical thinking, creative problem solving skills and team work in the participants.   The students build public speaking and dramatic skills, and learn how to operate within the constraints of time and place. The teams participate in competitions at the local level, and if they qualify, they move on to the state and world competitions.
