The Center offers two, four-week sessions of Super Saturdays each year, the first in the early fall and the second in the winter. Both sessions are held on the Western Kentucky University campus in Bowling Green, KY. Students take one class over the course of these four Saturdays. Each session is two-and-a-half hours in length.
Special discussion sessions are held for parents during their child’s classes. These Parent Seminars are led by staff members of The Center as well as other experts in the field of gifted education. Topics vary from session to session but all focus on meeting the needs of children who are gifted and talented.
Super Saturdays presents young, gifted learners with the opportunity to continue the learning process in an environment that encourages learning for the sake of knowledge. In turn, these students share their discoveries with friends and classmates in their weekday classroom. Super Saturdays exists to open new doors of learning at an age when it is absolutely critical to inspire the minds of gifted learners.
Brianna Hammer (Super Saturdays 1998) reflected on her experience, noting the program served as the basis for her academic success and self-confidence. She described Super Saturdays as “the opportunity of meeting a variety of people my age and obtaining unique skills in my classes… it is an honor to gain the chance of taking part in something that has molded me into the person I am today.”
