Helping the Scientifically Gifted.
Pyryt, Michael C.
This presentation summarizes effective strategies and programs for nurturing students who are gifted in science. A smorgasbord of educationally accelerative opportunities is recommended, to enhance students' potential for future development in science. These opportunities may include field trips, advanced placement courses, and science summer camps. Experiences that promote science achievement are described, such as simultaneous teaching of separate science subjects. Models for encouraging scientific development, such as early entrance to college and contests/competitions, are cited. Recommendations are offered for nurturing talent in science and technology. Recommendations relate to the topics of identification, science curriculum, and teachers/mentors. (Contains 15 references.) (JDD)
