Shaping bright young minds
The Junior Scientia Program is designed for gifted and talented primary school students in years 3-6. To participate in the program, students will select one 3-day workshop from a range of options.
All workshops are developed and presented by experienced teachers who are qualified or experienced in gifted education. They possess the expertise and skills to encourage the interests and pique the curiosity of gifted children.
To provide an appropriate level of rigour and challenge for gifted students, the level of difficulty of the workshops is set two years above the enrolled school level of the child. The workshop structure is also designed to further develop social skills and provide an opportunity for gifted students to meet like-minded peers with similar interests.
We were excited to welcome students back to UNSW in January 2021. These programs were especially anticipated after what was an unusual school year for so many. Though things looked a little different (and more physically distanced!) this time, we have been overwhelmed with positive feedback. Thank you to everyone who was involved and supported the programs.
We are currently planning the July 2021 Student Programs. We look forward to sharing details (including dates and available workshops) with everyone soon. To stay up to date with all the latest Student Programs information you can join our mailing list here.
