Welcome

Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of South Australia!

GTCASA is a volunteer organisation committed to enhancing the social, emotional and intellectual development of children and adolescents with high intellectual potential.

We organise events for gifted children, their carers and teachers.

Forthcoming events include:

ENRICHMENT SESSIONS

TERM 2 2016

SATURDAY CLUB  Intermediate  STEM Workshop on Physics, Space and Engineering

Presenter: Dr Michael Southcott

Target age level:  9-12 (but open to others close to this interested in the topic)

What to bring: An enthusiasm to learn is essential. It is highly desirable that students bring a notebook or sketchbook, pencil, sharpener and eraser to each session to record mind maps, thoughts, activities and designs. Limited spares of each should be available.

What if we can’t make a session: No sessions are prerequisites for others. The session on the June long weekend has been especially designed to not be a precursor to the final session.

All sessions run from 2pm until 4om and parents are required to remain in the staffroom for the session duration.
