Gifted students exhibit talent in
Sacramento State summer program

Fifth and sixth grade students who in the past may have been excluded from gifted and talented school programs will showcase the engineering skills they’ve learned in a Sacramento State summer science course. A presentation of the students’ final projects will be made on Wednesday, Aug. 2, between 10:30 a.m. and noon in Eureka Hall on campus.

The Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Program, in cooperation with the Davis school district, Sacramento State faculty and the university’s Academic Talent Search, is offering a summer program to gifted and talented students who might otherwise be passed by due to economic disadvantages, limited English proficiency or disabilities. The science courses focus on scientifically based research, demonstration projects and innovative strategies to problem-solving.

The events will demonstrate what the students have learned as they exhibit two different experiments: a hang time fly-off of paper airplanes, using the principles of flight, and an egg drop, illustrating engineering design principles. The egg drop presentation will be made in Room 112, while the airplane demonstration will be held in Room 329.

The Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education program is supported by a federal grant under the No Child Left Behind Act.

For more information, contact Professor David Jelinek at (916) 214-4491 or Professor Li-Ling Sun at (916) 214-4283. Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
