This international creative problem solving organization provides gifted children around the world an opportunity to develop their own special talents while also expanding critical thinking, problem solving, and team working skills. The children who participate in this program are at a greater advantage than other children for a successful future. The program is also heavily supported by parents and community so in the states where funding is an issue this is a perfect fit to fill the gap in the educational needs of our gifted children. Here in South Carolina it requires very little time from the teacher (who is already overwhelmed with requirements). This is the world's largest creative problem solving organization and is totally not for profit and run mainly by volunteers. All of the efforts are to benefit the children.
