CTY Talent Search participants in grades 5 - 7 are invited to experience the wealth of resources and activities available at prestigious museums, aquariums, and nature and science centers. As determined by the unique focus of each host institution, scientists, naturalists, historians, artists, and other educators guide participants through an exploration of on-site exhibits and activities, using their professional expertise to address the learning needs and lively curiosity of highly able students. Overall, the series provides a stimulating environment where families share a common love of learning while discovering new interests. The Discovery Series includes one-day, overnight, and extended programs.
Important note: Due to the programming needs and requirements of our host institutions, all participants must be at least ten years old to attend any Discovery program.
