From left, Molly Tardy, Thomas Lachapelle, Cooper Blair, Clover Pross and Chas Ellis practice their problem-solving skills while rehearsing their Maine Odyssey of the Mind skit in their coach’s basement in Auburn on Tuesday. The second-grade students from East Auburn Community School have been practicing two days a week to get ready for the primary tournament at Auburn Middle School on Saturday. They chose to be a family of rabbits that move to the circus after discovering that one of the bunnies has a hidden talent. The problem that they must solve during Saturday’s competition is “Movin’ Out.” Lachapelle’s mother, Heidi, is the Odyssey of the Mind coach for the team, East Auburn Rebels.
