Team Quest is an academic competition designed specifically for gifted and talented students that challenges them in areas of engineering, mathematics, and creativity. This unique competition allows teams of four students to demonstrate their ability to work together to successfully complete multiple challenges that cover five core areas:

 1) Team Strategy

2) Creative Design

3) Construction and Building

4) Logic and Higher Level Thinking

5) Real Life Problem Solving

 Each challenge is solved using a hands-on approach allowing teams to apply their knowledge to real life problems. The goal of the program is for students to carry these important skills into their everyday lives while incorporating creativity, imagination, and engineering along the way. All challenges are aligned with current national standards with a heavy emphasis on S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education.

​The Team Quest program is designed around a different theme each year, with all projects and challenges centered on that particular theme. Although challenges are centered on five core areas, curriculum based in the arts, music, history, geography, or physical competitions can also be incorporated. The theme is simply a way for the projects and challenges to be tied together in a fun and cohesive manner.  

There is a Team Quest Competition on December 6th in Orlando.  It is open to gifted 3rd and 4th graders.  The cost is $20.  For more information, email pr@flagifted.org.
