Adventures is a program designed specifically to challenge the minds of younger students who are exhibiting academic promise at a very early age. This program will give younger students the opportunity to explore the worlds of science, math, art, literature, readings, and engineering in the company of qualified instructors and fellow gifted students. OPPTAG strives to offer challenging academic experiences that incorporate hands-on experimentation and provides students with experiences not found in the traditional classroom.
This is a one-week, non-residential program for students entering grades 3-6. Students have the opportunity to choose one morning and one afternoon class in the same week or participate in just a morning or afternoon class. If students participate in two classes during the same week, they will bring their own lunch and eat with our Adventure Aide staff and other Adventure students while enjoying the beautiful Iowa State campus.
