boy-on-computerI remember back when I found some Super Saturday courses for my son.  That was 20 years ago now. It was the best thing that happened to us. My son was finally able to interact with other kids like him and could learn topics – in depth – that he was interested in. It was wonderful.  If only online courses had been available then, like those offered by SIG (Summer Institute for the Gifted).

You need to hurry, though. Courses for the spring session start on February 11, 2015, and run until April 7.  The registration deadline, January 28,  is rapidly approaching.  So what courses are available?

Here is a list of titles:

  • What’s the Chance? (Ages 7-8)
  • Be a Pet Vet (Ages 7-8)
  • Forces of Nature (Ages 7-8)
  • Energy Ideas Everywhere (Ages 9-10)
  • Diving into the Gene Pool (Ages 9-10)
  • Down With Disease (Ages 11-12)
  • The Proof is in the Logic (Ages 11-12)
  • Graphic Arts (Ages 9-12)

You can check out the descriptions of these courses by visiting the academics page of the SIG website.

Who is eligible to take these courses?  Basically, SIG says”any student who has been identified for a gifted & talented program or who can demonstrate eligibility for any SIG program” is eligible to take one of their courses. You do, of course, have to submit some kind of documentation when you apply. You can find details on what you can use as documentation on the eligibility page by clicking on the SIG Online Program Eligibility link.

More information about the application process, including costs and forms, is provided on the “How to Apply” page.
