Organized by: Lindsey Nelson

THE STORY:

Kids in Louisiana are starting back to school next week even though the state has been battered by flooding. Entire schools have been displaced. The air and water has destroyed virtually every paper-based resource in the district. Many educators are approaching the school year with stoic determination to give kids a first-class education in face of the major adversity. Opportunity Unlocked has the ability to inspire gifted students in Louisiana with the Curiosity Effect. In times of major crisis, few people are thinking about the needs of gifted students. Everyone thinks the "smart kids" will always be okay. The truth is that gifted kids have heightened emotions, process major events differently, and feel more normal when working on open-ended projects. Gifted educators are interested in using the Inventing adventure to help their kids transition back to school, leverage their curiosity as a way to process major events, and learn about moving from ideas to prototypes. The Inventing adventure lasts for 6 weeks. The initial fundraising goal is to share this program with 500 students.
