Challenging the Young Gifted Child in Science and Mathematics: An Enrichment Strategy

Diezmann, Carmel M. & Watters, James J. (2000) Challenging the Young Gifted Child in Science and Mathematics: An Enrichment Strategy. TalentEd, 18(1), pp. 2-8.


About ten years ago one of us (JJW) was approached by a regional gifted consultant with the request to provide some form of mentorship for a group of young children that she had identified as being gifted in science but unchallenged by their regular school program. This was the beginning of the Enrichment Network for the Very Young - a program for children aged 5 to 8 years old who have a particular interest in science and mathematics. This program is now a decade old and the first participants are nearing the end of high school. In this paper we share some of the key components of a successful enrichment program for young children.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
