Joplin, Mo - Children put their academic skills to the test in a nationally recognized program.
DukeTIP Academic Adventures began today at Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School.
Children grades four through six spent the day examining topics such as, chemistry, robotics, ancient history, and philosophy.
Throughout this summer-long program, students get to engage with others, while also learning new subjects that may not be covered in the average classroom.
"In the Four States area, there's so many bright students and we're we're really happy to have them come together with other similiarly minded students and work on something um that they're interested in doing that they wouldn't be able to do." says Robert Carlson, Director of Technology and Communication at Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School
Carlson plans on continuing this program so that students across the Four States can partake in this academic experience.
