Welcome back to another amazing school year! Weare approaching our third year of Harlandale ISD's Gifted and Talented (GT) Program entitled Ingenium.
Ingeniumis a rigorous activity, project, and problem-based program in which students use structured approaches, such as the engineering design process and scientific method. Students employ skills such as critical thinking,, collaboration, and creativity as they solve relevant,real-world problems. They apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, learning that it is OK to take risks and make mistakes. As teachers and students learn and discover together, education becomes far more engaging. Students demonstrate their knowledge throughout the course by completing activities, projects, and problems using a variety of assessment tools, such as performance rubrics and reflective questioning, to deepen and expand their knowledge and skills.
Students, who have been identified as GT, will be attending Ingenium during the 2016-2017 school year, at one of the Ingenium Destinations. (Pleasenote that students attending Ingenium at a campus different from their home campus will be bused to the Ingenium site.)
We are excited about this unique program being offered in Harlandale I.S.D.
Please feel free to contact the Harlandale ISD GT Facilitators, Sonia Cuellar at 210-989-4487 and/or Charles Hernandez at 210-989-4368, if you have any questions or concerns.
