Hey Allen Gifted families! We know everyone is staying home and getting your schoolwork done with plenty of time left over to take on a creative challenge or two? So, we have put together some challenges for you to do that we will be posting here over the next few weeks! We are trying to choose challenges with few or found materials. We want to see you show off your creativity and innovation! So, complete the challenge, take a photo (or video if applicable) and add it on the challenge post for everyone to see!

First challenge up is building a Rube Goldberg Machine! Check out the link below to learn all about Rube Goldberg machines and materials and methods you can use. (The only materials you need for this one are objects you already have around the house!) Take a look at this challenge and put your creativity to work! We can't wait to see what you can do with it. Please add your pic or video to our post by Monday, April 20 at 10 pm! How to build a Rube Goldberg machine with little inventors, ages 4 and up.

[04/07/20]   Good morning Allen ISD Gifted & Talented Community. We at Allen Gifted just wanted to take a moment to let you know we are thinking of you! Like you, we are navigating at-home learning while our kids are missing their teachers and friends. We are so thankful for the hard work the teachers have put in to convert to online lessons so quickly!

We at Allen Gifted are also working on ways to provide at-home enrichment activities for your gt learner and an opportunity for them to share their projects with their classmates. We will be posting a weekly challenge on this page, as well as other content throughout the week. Please feel free to share your child's work in the comments (and post their school so classmates can find each other!)

Hang in there and stay safe!
