Imagine a classroom ... where young girls and boys plot sunspots using telescopes, measure raindrops, create snowflakes in June, track hurricanes and tornadoes, and explore the heavens with a wide array of photographic and telescopic devices.
Imagine a very special learning place ... where students gather information and produce their work in a variety of formats, daily weather forecasts, video documentaries, reenactments, music videos, web pages, power points and papers.
Imagine a forum ... where young people have an opportunity to dialogue one-on-one with master teachers, astronauts, explorers, mountain climbers, renowned scientists and science fiction writers as well as poets, artists, musicians, authors and great thinkers.
Well, you need imagine no further. The Talcott Mountain Academy is the first elementary / middle school in Connecticut which offers an entire program exclusively for academically talented youngsters all day, every school day.
