Each Academic Adventure focuses on a single advanced topic that could be anything from the mathematics of tessellations to Shakespeare, genetics, computer programming, science fiction, business, and much more. Different courses may be offered in the spring and fall. You can learn more about the program philosophy and experience.

The course search also only includes courses offered at Duke TIP–run sites; you can see the courses offered by our partner sites around the country on the sites page.

Academic Adventures give fourth, fifth, and sixth graders the opportunity to explore fascinating subjects not found elsewhere, deepen their knowledge of a favorite field, and meet other gifted students. Courses cover a range of subjects and are offered by Duke TIP at three different college campuses, as well as at partner locations across the country.
