GERI at Purdue University
For over 34 years, Purdue University’s Gifted Education Resource Institute (GERI) has been serving 5th-12th grade gifted, creative, and talented students in residential summer programs that stimulate their imaginations and expand their abilities and talents! Our unique classes include content from all subject areas, including science, math, technology, art, social studies, and computers. Our camps also offer a variety of recreational activities and a chance for students to get a taste of college life as they live on campus in Purdue’s residence halls. Interested students and parents may go the GERI website http://www.geri.education.purdue.edu/ for all the information they will need, including an online brochure and a video highlighting our programs.
