CRAZY BOXES from Delta Odyssey Angels, the Odyssey of the Mind team from Discovery Bay California combine art and engineering to make STEAM-based fun and original, team-building games for people of all ages. Through colorful boxes filled with original, challenging, STEM-based building games, that the Discovery Bay California team share with people of all ages, wherever they go, they encourages thinking “outside the box” using teamwork, creativity and new ideas, inspiring and helping people talk and relate to each other to work together for a common goal.
