A Conference Series For and About Highly and Profoundly Gifted Children
Michael Clay Thompson
About BIQ: Since 2001, hundreds of teachers, parents, children, and young adults have gathered together in and around Boston, Chicago, Seattle & Washington DC, for wonderfully enriching weekends. The Beyond IQ conference is a multifaceted experience including workshops, keynotes, activities for kids and/or grownups, and networking. We will be returning to some of these areas and seeking to go to new ones in 2013-2014 for more exciting and educational events.
About GCP: In 2015-16, we expect to resume sending out a quarterly newsletter and presenting relevant blogs. We are working on a one week summer family camp as well as a series of evening talks in various parts of the country, exploring different aspects of giftedness.
With special thanks to the Arisia Science Fiction Convention for loan of materials for our children's program again this year.
And thanks to all who came to Beyond IQ Boston 2016!!
