Watch gifted and talented students compete in a Challenge Day in this episode of NJEA’s Classroom Close-up. About 120 students from different schools form teams and rotate through five activities that test their critical thinking and teamwork skills. The goal is to draw attention to the importance of learning to work together to solve problems. Many of the challenges involve building objects with simple materials and seeing how well the solutions work. The communication and problem-solving skills the students gain will help them prepare for tomorrow’s jobs.
