ASEAN+3 Center for the Gifted in Science(ACGS) is created for the purpose of providing a place
for the gifted students to stimulate their curiosity and develop their ability toward science,
as well as a better opportunity to exchange ideas and friendship in the international pool of
First, ASEAN+3 Teacher Workshop & Student Camp is to make a creative result via group activity
for assignment in the field of S&T with the gifted. Second, ASEAN Plus Three Junior Science Odyssey
(APT JSO) is a competition which is designed in order to resolve theoretical curiosity of the gifted
by carrying out actual experiment, for them to get deeper knowledge and idea of that part of
experiment, and to provide a place for the gifted in APT region to get international insight making
friendships for their future. Third, ASEAN+3 Board of Directors Meeting is gathering to share some
ideas for the gifted in science in APT region, and develop and exchange educational contents for
them. In addition, it is discussed and decided what ACGS do in the next year for the gifted in
science in this region.
We think our role for gifted students is to draw their ability, build up an international network in
order to and make them use the network for their career and research in the future in the field of
S&T. And, of course, this workforce, which the gifted students will be someday, would be greatly
helpful to make APT region raise its status in the international society.
We, ACGS, would put a great deal of effort to make some more cooperation and exchange of
the gifted and specialists, making progress for educational contents of the gifted in science.
Furthermore, we would hope to create an opportunity for cooperation.
Please keep showing us your continuos attention and cooperation for ASEAN+3 Center for the
Gifted in Science. Thank you.
