In addition to creating awareness about high ability children, Gifted in France has initiated a number of educational events for children and adults in the greater Paris area.


France brain bee

The France Brain Bee
is our latest initiative. We’ve established an affiliate of the International Brain Bee, a neuroscience competition for students in 9th-12th grade (3ème-Terminale). Gifted in France has recently partnered with ICM (The Brain & Spine Institute - or L’Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière). ICM are the official hosts and sponsor of the April 2019 event in collaboration with GiF.

Gifted in France collaborates with institutions such as the American Library in Paris and the American University in Paris to co-host presentations and screenings.
