Duke TIP weekends at UGA

UGA has opened registration for the next two Duke TIP Scholar Weekend at UGA: Feb. 4-5, and March 18-19, 2017. Students in grades 8 to 11 can spend the weekend on the UGA campus studying an academic topic of their choice.

Classes for the February weekend include topics in engineering, the history and culture of Appalachia, music, psychology, politics, and more. March topics include climate change, entrepreneurship, music journalism, a Rube Goldberg challenge, and — I’d like to know more about this one — something called “Star Wars Mock Trial.”

The weekend program costs $450 for students staying in a hotel on campus, or $400 for students who want to commute to the program each day. Financial aid is available.

To participate, a student must either:

  • Be registered with the Duke TIP Talent Search program; or
  • Obtain confirmation of gifted status from the Duke TIP headquarters

Registration is open for both weekends now. Popular classes will fill quickly.
