MensaKids & Family ist einer der „Special Interest Groups“ (SIGs) von Mensa Luxemburg und wurde im Jahr 2010 von einer Gruppe Eltern hochbegabter Kinder gegründet.

Jene Eltern (manchmal auch der Lehrer / die Lehrerin) stellten fest, dass diese Kinder anders agierten/reagierten als deren Klassenkameraden und wollten die Ursachen dieses abweichenden Verhaltens ergründen. Für diejenigen Kinder, bei denen die Ursache in einer Hochbegabung liegt, ist es von unschätzbarer Wichtigkeit, andere Kinder kennenzulernen, welche in der gleichen Lage sind. Bei diesen Begegnungen können dann auch die Eltern aus den Erfahrungen anderer Eltern Nutzen ziehen.

MensaKids will Ihnen eine interaktive Plattform zur Zusammenarbeit anbieten.

Das Konzept besteht darin, alle paar Wochen ein Treffen zu organisieren, sowie andere Aktivitäten: Ateliers, Workshops, Besichtigungen, Führungen, usw.; aber auch IQ-Tests für Kinder, Elterntreffen, Vorträge oder Diskussionsrunden mit Interessierten und/oder Betroffenen, Lehrpersonal, Psychologen, usw.

Ihre Ideen und Vorschläge sind willkommen

Sie können uns über kids@mensa.lu erreichen, oder telefonisch: 691 800 665 dienstags bis donnerstags ab 10 Uhr (eventuell mehrmals versuchen), vor den Tests auch an allen anderen Tagen, außer freitags.

Die Aktivitäten von MensaKids (Planung und Organisation) werden ermöglicht durch die Arbeit und das Engagement einiger weniger ehrenamtlich Tätiger.

Mensa Kids & Family is one of the "Special Interest Groups" (SIGs) of Mensa Luxembourg and was established in 2010 by a group of parents of gifted children.

Those parents (and sometimes the teacher) found that these children acted/reacted differently than their classmates and wanted to explore the causes of such different behaviour. For those children for which the cause is giftedness, it is of inestimable value to meet other children who are in the same situation. During these meetings, the parents too can benefit from the experiences of other parents.

Mensa Kids wants to offer 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.

Your ideas and suggestions are welcome

You can reach us at the e-mail address kids@mensa.lu. (Andrée)

Mensa IQ Test: General Information

The Mensa IQ test is a standardised and phased test which is supervised by a psychologist, and which is primarily aimed at finding gifted people. Results equal to or greater than the 98% percentile grant the right to be part of the Mensa organization. (www.mensa.lu and www.mensa.org) This test does not contain any question on general culture. It rather tests the logical and mathematical skills and abilities (the speed of information processing, analysis and synthesis , attention to detail, etc..). If the candidate has not reached the score needed for a Mensa.lu membership, he has the right to take the test another time for free.

This test is proposed twice a year by Mensa Luxembourg. The date and place can be found on this site, in the yellow box on top of each page.

Special Information

This test is intended for children aged from 6.5 to 9.5 years on the day of the test. Children which are older than 9 years take the adult test.

As this test does not contain any question on general culture and does not take into account the academic nor the verbal knowledge of the child, it gives equal opportunities to "good" and "bad" students. There is no need for preparation nor training. The child does not need to be able to read or write. The explanations will be given in Luxembourgish and, if required, in German, French, and English. The test takes about half an hour. Registration is required (only at the email address kidstest@mensa.lu) no later than 3 days before the test. This test is graded by age brackets and is taken in 2 sessions / groups. The assignment to groups and starting time are determined by the child's age (and the ages of the other children present) and thus can not be known until after the close of registration. The price of 40 € is payable in cash on the spot, before the test. The results will be mailed within 2-4 weeks after the test. No need to ask for results on phone or e-mail
