A Report on the Science Summer Camp for the Gifted 9th Grade Students.
Kyeonggi Province Board of Education, Suweon (Republic of Korea).
A summer science camp was held in Korea for 30 ninth grade students gifted in science. Students were divided into three groups (physics, chemistry, and biology) for activities which included problem solving, brainstorming, and experimental work. The experiments of the physics group addressed the use of solar energy, the chemistry group focused on prevention of water pollution, and the biology group explored ways to increase food production. Among characteristics of participating students were high mean IQ and creativity, good general health, and homes with television sets and radios. Students evaluated themselves in terms of their problem solving experiences, social life experiences at the camp, and experimental activities. The physics, biology, and chemistry teachers also related their perceptions of participating students. The original purposes of the camp were to enhance students' creativity and accelerate learning through problem solving, as well as to train teachers in gifted education. A working schedule of activities for each of the groups is appended. (SB)
