What is Super Saturday?
Super Saturday is Lancaster Partners for Gifted Education’s signature event, designed to excite children’s interest in learning.
Participants choose three 45-minute kid-sized seminars from a diverse
selection of topics. Past programs have included robotics, animation, theatre, Chinese language, reptiles, creative writing, LEGO machines, the
cardiovascular system, and electricity, to name but a few. There is something for everyone. A parent presentation is also offered.
A nominal fee is charged to cover expenses and help fund future LC PAGE

The next Super Saturday will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 9 am to noon at Franklin & Marshall College.

This session shares a close-up view of what the research is telling us about best practices for families in the digital age. You’ll learn the tips and strategies you need to hack parenting the digital native.

From her website, GiftedGuru.com:
Who is the Gifted Guru?
My real name is Lisa Van Gemert (pronounced “gammert”). I’m an educator by training, and I’m a Giftedland native – I was a gifted student, I’ve raised three gifted kids, and I’ve taught gifted students. The gifted trifecta! I’ve been a teacher, a school administrator, a homeschooling mom, a paralegal, an Army Intelligence Analyst (yep), and a cheerleader. Not in that order.
