Fayette County Gifted Program Visits Glenville State University and Learns about Brain Development Middle and High School students from the Fayette County Gifted Program toured Glenville State University on October 27, 2022. While there, Professor Katelyn Ensor, specializing in Cognitive Science, lectured students on brain development. Fayette County launched a pilot program for middle school gifted students last year. All gifted students from across the county are bussed to Oak Hill Middle School where they study Problem Based Learning units that involve critical and creative thinking and help solve real world problems. This year students have been studying brain development. Topics covered include metacognition, schema, moral decision making, and problem solving. Mrs. Ensor’s lecture helped to deepen student understanding and give them more ideas to incorporate in their projects. Students were able to learn about college life, academics, admission costs, and begin thinking about their futures. Ava Queen and Holly Jones from Oak Hill Middle School, as well as Dean Ryan from Meadow Bridge High School, volunteered to complete a problem-solving activity during the presentation.
