Mensa Kids has been created in 2010 through the initiative of a group of parents of gifted children.
The parents (and sometimes the teaching staff too) found that certain children acted/reacted differently than their classmates and wanted to find out why this was the case. This can have many causes, for example the kid may be intellectually gifted. For those children for which the cause is indeed intellectual giftedness, it is of inestimable value to meet other children who are in a similar situation.
Mensa Kids wants to offer them an interactive platform for collaboration. The idea is to organize every few weeks a meeting, as well as other activities: workshops, (guided) tours, etc., but also IQ tests for children, parents' meetings, lectures or discussions with interested and/or affected parties, teaching staff, psychologists, etc.
During these meetings, the parents too can benefit from the experiences of other parents.
Your ideas and suggestions are welcome!
You can reach us at the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The activities of Mensa Kids (planning and organization) are made possible by the work and the dedication of a very small number of volunteers.
