Expand your mind in a fun & challenging setting

Our GERRIC for Gifted Students program is offered to gifted and talented students (students who can perform in the top 10% of their age-peers) in Years 3-10 at Australian primary, middle or secondary school. This is a school holiday program that expands the minds of bright, inquisitive individuals looking for an intellectual challenge that is more demanding and more fun than they may sometimes experience at school.

GERRIC Student Programs open a student's mind to abilities they may not have known they possess. At UNSW, gifted students meet others who share their interests and they are taught by educators who love working in this field. Our programs are offered on the UNSW campus and give students the opportunity to work on a small project.

The next GERRIC Student Programs will be held in January 2025 on the UNSW Kensington campus. More details will be provided in the GERRIC July 2024 newsletter which can be subscibed to through our mailing list

Learn about what GERRIC can offer your student

GERRIC Student Programs are currently offered in two categories: Junior Scientia: Years 3 – 6 and Scientia Challenge: Years 7 – 10.

All workshops are developed and presented by experienced teachers who are qualified or experienced in gifted education. They possess the expertise and skills to encourage the interests and pique the curiosity of gifted children.  Workshops in Years 7-10 are developed and led by practising experts, the workshops follow a university-style investigative structure with intellectually-stimulating content.

To provide an appropriate level of rigour and challenge for gifted students, the level of difficulty of the workshops is set two years above the enrolled school level of the child. The workshop structure is also designed to further develop social skills and provide an opportunity for gifted students to meet like-minded peers with similar interests.
