The Odyssey of the Mind Program Guide gives guidance on costs for commercial items; a link to it is available on the Resources page. Typically, the team would use “garage sale” prices unless they purchase an item specifically to be used as part of their solution. In that case, the team should include a receipt with their cost form. Remember that a fundamental tenet of Odyssey of the Mind is for students to be creative; therefore, a team might want to consider a solution that does not use pre-fabricated devices and rather try to build their own device.
If the team is using parts (e.g., wheels) of a Lego set or Tinker Toy set, how is that priced for the budget?
