UGA opens registration for October 20-21 session of Duke TIP Weekend

The University of Georgia has announced the schedule for its 2012-2013 UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekends. The first weekend will be Oct. 20-21, 2012. Students can stay on campus or commute for the two days of classes.

UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekends are for students in 8th-11th grades who have participated in the Duke TIP program, have been identified as gifted by their school, or are currently taking advanced classes (e.g., Advanced Placement, honors, or IB). The Scholar Weekend classes are taught by UGA professors or graduate students.

Students select a single course to study for the weekend. Classes in the fall session will include robotics, behavioral psychology, public speaking, American foreign policy, artificial intelligence, alternative media, and the physics of aircraft design.

An early bird discount of $25 is available through Sept. 14. The registration cutoff is Oct. 5, but as I always say about these programs, the high-demand courses will be full well before that, so don’t procrastinate.
