This is the image for the news article titled Hempstead ISD Celebrates Year with GT ShowcaseStudents in the Gifted and Talented program at Hempstead ISD had a chance to showcase some of the things they had studied during the 2016-2017 school year at the end of the year GT Showcase held at the Bobcat Den in May. Each student participating brought a project they had worked on and set up an exhibit for the public to view. As guests observed the exhibits, the students introduced themselves and talked about their projects.

Over seventy-five guests were in attendance and many were amazed at the work the students had done. Some of the projects and presentations included a catapult, the caveman, mammals that stay under water the longest, airplanes, making slime, the solar system, cuddle & care bear that keeps the doctor away, lava lamps, gymnastics, honey bees, the history of chickens, crystallized flowers made with borax, a solar/battery powered rover, and many others.

At the end of the showcase, GT Coordinator Cindy Jenkins thanked everyone who attended the event and talked to the parents and guests about some of the exciting things they had planned for next year’s GT program.
