About eInvestigators

This unique online experience for fourth, fifth, and sixth grade members of TIP’s 4th–6th Grade Talent Search gives young gifted scholars an interactive, engaging way to gain investigative reasoning and research skills, knowledge of a specific academic discipline, and the principles of good digital citizenship. Students work independently and collaboratively throughout the week and attend live web conferencing sessions on the weekends. Through case assignments, online research, special activities, peer-to-peer interaction, and more, eInvestigators take on the role of a real-world investigative professional to solve a mystery—whether that means uncovering what's ailing a medical patient, finding the perpetrator of a crime, or discovering what happened to an ancient civilization.
