Renzulli Creativity Program

Renzulli Creativity Programs, by LPI Learning empower participants from across the globe to become the world's next generation of problem solvers and leaders.

This unique 2 to 3-week summer program will be offered at Yale University, Georgetown University and UCLA. Program dates begin on 4th June, 2017 and admission is open to students aged 13-15. The program is designed to stimulate maximum levels of creativity, teamwork and enterpreneurship. Unlike traditional gifted and talented or academic programs, Renzulli Creativity develops advanced cognitive skills and a creative investigative mindset.

The program leverages student motivation and excitement to achieve advanced learning results. Students attain these benefits by working in interdisciplinary teams and utilizing a project based approach to solve real life problems related to their personal interests. A quote from a Renzulli student illustrates this, "The one thing I liked best about my work on projects in the program is that I could simultaneously be challenged as an individual and also be a member of a group with common interests?

Skills acquired through the program enrich life-long learning and are transferable to future academic and career challenges. These skills are the hallmark of designers, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators.

The program is based upon the work of Dr. Joseph Renzulli, a leader in the field of education who ranks among the 25 most influential psychologists in the world. Renzulli received the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Award for Innovation in Education, considered by many to be “the Nobel? for educators, and was a consultant to the White House Task Force on Education of the Gifted and Talented.
