    Abstract: Children ‘gifted’ in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) represent a nation’s intellectual or social capital, because if identified and trained properly at an early age, their extraordinary intellectual capacity can not only bring sustainable solutions for real problems in the fields of science and technology, but can make significant contribution to the nation’s economic growth and development.These children demonstrate exceptional abilities for in depth learning, enhanced capacity for abstraction and imagination. In fact, their insurmountable energy and their continuous quest for answers to difficult questions, non typical to the general population, make them special in the classroom and society.
