TDI is a summer camp/academic program, with overnight and commuter options, for advanced and gifted students who are entering grades 4-9. The 2018 Institute will be held for two weeks: June 24-30 and July 1-7. Participants may be involved for one or both weeks. This year's classes- which include Rube Goldberg Machines, Writing, Culinary Chemistry, Web Design, and Improvisation- nurture students' creativity and their love of learning. Campers have a blast learning alongside other smart kids on a small college campus (Johnson State College) nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains. Partial scholarships are available.
