In this research, it is aimed to identify the scientific creativity of gifted students through project-based activities. In accordance with this purpose, a study has been carried out with 13 gifted students studying in third and fifth grade. In the study, students have been informed about the project development stages and they have been asked project designs that would facilitate the daily life. Following the project designs, semi-structured interviews with the students and teacher observations in the process have been carried out. In addition, pictures of the students' project drawings have been taken. Interviews, observations and pictures have been subjected to content analysis. Categories have been defined depending on the size of scientific creativity which was suggested by Hu and Adey (2002). Within the context of the categories; proposals have been offered to researchers and people in concern. Activities can be enhanced for the development of different aspects of scientific creativity.
