Summer STEAM Program 2019 For Young Scholars


Overview

Village East Gifted (VEG) is a place where individuality trumps normalcy celebrating the differences of its students and their unique ways of thinking. Students never learn what they already know or encounter the same curriculum twice subliminally instilling a renewed faith in intellectual challenge. The VEG trademarked writing-based program offers its participants a multitude of advanced subject areas and creative problem-solving activities while close attention is paid to the perfection of grammar, syntax, vocabulary, correct word usage, idea sequencing, and spelling. Though the VEG philosophies and methodologies of gifted education are the same in all of its programs, Summer STEAM Program 2019 For Young Scholars offers rigorous and highly-creative STEAM curriculum that is a radically different curriculum from what is implemented during the school year.
