In a school still struggling to serve the influx of evacuees from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Ms. Morrier and Mr. Sebek implement a program to provide the enrichment necessary for gifted students to succeed beyond grade level expectations. Students work as a team to solve a problem and present their solution to a real world audience at a regional competition. Expanding their problem solving skills, students engage in an independent research study, create a professional level product around a topic of their choosing, and submit their advanced product to be scored by trained appraisers.
