A place where gifted minds can expand and soar.
The Imaginarium is a unique Perth College initiative that caters for gifted girls of very high ability.
Innovation, curiosity and creativity are encouraged and rigorous intellectual development occurs. The Imaginarium is a challenging and motivating environment which enhances the holistic development of gifted girls through after-school and holiday courses.
Open to gifted girls who attend any school in Western Australia from years 1 to 9, Imaginarium provides an opportunity to share experiences with peers and develop cognitive, social, emotional and vocational skills. Positive Psychology underpins course content, promoting wellbeing.
Interestingly, the girls decide what they will study. Their interests might lead the group to a course that ranges from animatronics to marine biology, mythological creatures to the chemistry of skincare, biomechanics to architecture, creative thinking to space engineering, or anywhere beyond.
The exciting thing that happens is that girls can explore their interests and passions and delve deeply into topis with like-minded peers. New friendships establish and grow during the courses, with each girl encouraged and supported to be her unique self.
A vocational aspect is included in each course to introduce gifted girls to a range of career types. Incursions or excursions with experts in their field are included with ample time for questioning.
Imaginarium continues to grow and provide new opportunities for gifted girls to flourish.
