Challenging and Extending Talented Students across the Curriculum (VIC)

Hundreds of ways to challenge your best and brightest! Connect them to the world. Tease their brains. Solve real world problems. Get philosophical. Organise personal learning quests. Learn and apply objective thinking skills. Is that ethical (dilemmas to bust their mind)? Unlock their creativity by designing puzzles and games. Test their general knowledge. Push their personal presentation skills. Competitions and resources that will unlock your students’ potential.
