We have GATE academies once a month and either I lead or we have special guests! We are currently producing and editing a short film that the students created. We have a book club with different leveled books to read and discuss. For academies: we have done a clue game activity, soduku, abstract art, building design, power point, drama, problem solving, discussions, mensa.com discussions and activities for kids, multiple intelligence tests, coding, finger-printing with a detective speaking.... and the list goes on. Additionally, they have monthly projects due each month, which they present. I also have a GATE group on Edmodo where they can communicate about projects and share neat websites to read and discuss. Additionally they save work on flash drives and bring it to each academy. We are still working out the dates for next year but they will be similar to this year's dates.
