Creative thinking is a valuable skill in today’s world, allowing students to challenge themselves and explore different approaches in order to discover new and exciting solutions. Through creativity, gifted students can learn new perspectives and better engage with the course material—gaining new skills, experiences, and insights that further advance their academic and personal growth.
At SIG, creative thinking and problem-solving are core components of the student experience. Here, your child is encouraged to become an out-of-the-box thinker, participating in innovative course projects that are specifically designed to foster a love of creativity across multiple disciplines. This approach, delivered through our unique STEAM+ curriculum, allows students to benefit from a truly enriching learning experience. Read on to learn more about our creative gifted summer programs.
SIG’s unique STEAM+ curriculum focuses on delving deeper into the main fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, as well as humanities and fitness for a more comprehensive education. Through their studies, gifted students are introduced to intriguing topics that allow them to apply and strengthen their research and creative problem-solving skills.
By learning in classrooms with a low student-teacher ratio, students can develop the confidence to challenge themselves creatively and proactively explore advanced academics. Supportive instructors and teaching assistants play a key role in promoting this growth, guiding students as they navigate the uncharted territories of new and exciting subjects—fostering an in-demand skill set that prepares them for professional and academic success.
Creativity is a key aspect of giftedness, where students develop new and innovative ideas that address real-world problems. At SIG, creativity is woven deeply into our gifted summer programs—combined with proactive critical thinking and problem-solving projects to further enhance students’ learning experiences.
Hands-on projects and engaging social activities in each course are designed to encourage collaboration with like-minded peers. This creates an environment and community that allows students to explore their full potential, giving them the unique opportunity to combine logical reasoning with their own imagination. Through SIG’s multidisciplinary approach, students are encouraged to apply their creativity without any limits, supporting their solutions with practical research while grounding them in real-world applications.
SIG summer enrichment programs prioritize flexibility and self-directed learning, allowing students to play a more active role in shaping their learning journey. This means enabling students to pursue their personal passions, gain new exposure in their fields of interest, as well as establish and work towards achieving their individual learning goals.
Every step of the way, students are inspired to be creative and proactive with their education. Our courses embrace this message, integrating a broad range of innovative subjects in our course catalogue. Those interested in technology and the future can explore fun courses like Smart Cities: Reimagining Urban Infrastructures or Creative Engineering and Robotics.
