UGA-Duke TIP weekends for high-school students

duke-tipYesterday, I posted about the UGA-Duke TIP Academic Adventures programs for 5th and 6th graders. Today, I wanted to let you know that registration is also open for the spring 2013 programs for students in grades 8-11.

The next two UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekends will be Feb. 16-17 and April 20-21.

Unlike Academic Adventures, which requires that students be registered with the Duke-TIP Talent Search, the Scholar Weekends are open to any students who have been gifted identified by their school. This includes any students who are enrolled in honors, International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement or accelerated classes.

Topics this spring include architecture, science fiction, psychology, robotics, and public speaking, and several more.

Students arrive on the UGA campus on Saturday morning, spend the day learning, stay overnight at the Georgia Center hotel on the UGA campus, and continue their studies on Sunday. Courses are taught by UGA professors, graduate students, honors students, and gifted educators.

The deadline to register for the February weekend is Feb. 1; for the April session, you can register until April 5. Popular courses may fill before the registration deadline. For the February session, register by Jan. 4 to receive a $25 discount. The early bird discount for the April session will be available until March 8.
