The 2016 NYC Gifted & Talented Symposium & Benefit includes topics on talent development, social & emotional development and how to navigate the practical matters for parents and educators of NYCs high potential youth, from pre-k through middle school. As requested by NYC families, the keynote, Finding Nourishment for Advanced Learners in Today’s Education Desert by Johns Hopkins Center for Talent Youth’s Dr. Elaine Hansen and a Thought Leaders Conversation– The Secret Sauce: Articulating What Works in Educating High Ability Youth Citywide will focus on best practices for supporting high ability youth throughout NYC.  A Curated Exhibit Hall will feature the best and most unique programs to support the passion, interest and talent areas of our children. The Education Technology Discovery Showcase allows parents and educators to test drive innovative programs that support teachers and students in the classroom and children and their parents at home. And finally, the Michael Perelstein Discover Your Passion awardees, the third cohort of talented NYC youth with talents that include the arts, comedic performance, computer science, music and chess, will exemplify what gifted and talented education looks like in practice.
