Parent Seminars at Super Saturdays

 

Super Saturdays encourages students in grades 1 – 6 who are of high ability or have high interest in a topic to pursue their passions outside the regular classroom. Through a minds-on, hands-on approach to learning, students explore and investigate such areas as math, art, science, history, writing, music, and performance under the thoughtful guidance of experienced teachers and in the company of enthusiastic, like-minded peers. Each year, over 1000 students enjoy the benefits of Super Saturdays.

The Center offers two, three-week sessions of Super Saturdays each year, the first in the early fall and the second in the winter. Both sessions are held on Western Kentucky University‘s campus in Bowling Green, KY. Choosing from more than 30 classes, students take one class over the course of these four Saturdays. Each session is two-and-a-half hours in length. Recent classes have included Science Experiments Galore, Acting, Under the Sea Discovery, Einstein in Monet's Garden Meets Picasso, Super Spies, Breakout EDU, and Carnival Ride Camp.

In addition, The Center offers special discussion sessions for parents during their child’s classes. These Parent Seminars are led by staff members of The Center as well as other experts in the field of gifted education. Topics vary from session to session, but all focus on meeting the needs of children who are gifted and talented. Recent topics have included “Myths about Giftedness” and “Understanding and Navigating Dual Exceptionalities.”

Super Saturdays presents young, gifted learners with the opportunity to continue the learning process in a student-centered environment that celebrates learning for the sake of knowledge. It opens new doors of learning at an age when it is absolutely critical to inspire the minds of gifted learners.
