Odyssey of the Mind 

Do you like to build things, all kinds of things out of whatever you can find in the garage or around your house? Do you like to write your own stories and act them out? Then this is the club for you! Odyssey of the Mind is a worldwide competition that challenges groups of 7 students to solve one of 5 different problems – build a vehicle, create a technical apparatus, remake a classic (art, music, literature), build a structure to hold 1000lbs+ out of balsa, or create a humorous skit to solve a problem. You will compete first against other middle schools in the region and then a second state level competition. The top 2 teams from the state level have the opportunity to compete at the World Competition – 900+ competitors from 26 states and 14 different countries. There will be an informational meeting in October to help you decide if this is this is club for you. To see what the Webber Problem 4 Balsa build team did last year that won them 7th out of 65 teams in the world in their division, and 4th overall in weight holding 1244lbs on 16grams of balsa beating the high school and college division teams, please click on the link. https://youtu.be/Jf5t6xtZ-X4

WAVE

WAVE is Webber Aerospace Ventures in Education. WAVE is Webber’s oldest-running club dating back to the first Mission in 1992. Modelled on NASA, student participants prepare for and complete a simulated space mission each Semester. Currently, Missions visit the Moon or Mars. Students will have an opportunity to join a number of Teams specializing in Life, Water, Geology, Journalism, Systems Engineering, Hospitality and Security, Satellite Engineering, and other fields. This club is almost entirely student-run, and supported by a strong alumni network. All Webber Panthers are welcome to join, and there is always a team which fits the interests of the student.

Students who sign up for the first time do so at the “Mission Specialist” level. There are no interviews or applications required. Once a student has completed one Mission, they become eligible for positions of greater leadership. Leadership positions, including Team Commander, Team Project Manager, Astronaut, Flight Director and Mission Director, are “unlocked” based on numbers of Missions completed and at which position. All students applying for a Project Manager, Astronaut or Director position, will need to sign up for an interview. An interview schedule will be set at an initial informational meeting at the beginning of each semester. If a student misses the initial sign up and is interested in becoming part of the WAVE Leadership Team, they should see Mr. Schroeder. Students may combine after-school activities such as Sports and Academic clubs and still participate in Wave

WAVE meets every Tuesday from 2:55-4:00 in the Tech Room (E01). There is a $40 fee associated with participation.

Wellness Club 

Wellness club will meet the 3rd and 4th Wednesday of every month from 3-4pm, starting October 19th. 

Anyone interested in helping plan and participate in fun wellness activities at Webber should join the Wellness Club. We organize events like the student and staff ricochet tournament, parent and student racquet nights, the student dodgeball tournament and the panther survivor challenge at the end of the year. In the past we have even been able to take a field trip to Rocky to check out their Student Wellness Day. We would love to have any new ideas as well, so come join the Wellness Club to promote healthy activities at Webber.

Please contact Mrs. Krista Laaveg at klaavege@psdschools.org, if you have any questions
