Duke TIP Fall Scholar Weekend

September 23, 2007

To allow students to be challenged academically while experiencing a taste of  life in a college setting, Duke TIP Scholar Weekends provide opportunities  for academically talented students in grades 8-12 (depending on site) to take short courses during weekend-long programs at a college or university. To be eligible, students must have participated in the Duke TIP talent search or been identified as academically gifted/talented by local school criteria.

Courses introduce topics that might not be available in students’ local schools. They provide enrichment, sharpen skills, and help students define pathways to college  majors and careers. In addition, they provide a glimpse into the collegiate experience and an opportunity for students to interact with similarly motivated students.

Previously, courses have been offered in law, philosophy, business, environmental issues, medicine, writing, and drama. The program is not intended to provide high school or college credit.

Duke scholars have an opportunity to participate in scholar weekend at TCU November 10-11, 2007.  The topics for the weekend are:

  • Business in a Global Economy
  • Intro to  Object Oriented Programming using Jeroo
  • Mammalian Structure and Function: Dissection of the Fetal Pig
  • The Art of the Portfolio

More information is available on the Duke TIP website, by clicking on Texas Christian University.
