Summary
"This work by a diverse field of international authors focuses discussion on the interplay of giftedness and creativity within the scientific enterprise and provides evidence and theoretical constructs which can be used to adjust learning environments to be conducive to the development of superior scientists. The book also explores the interplay of creativity and giftedness for scientists in a historical context, describes the importance of creativity in scientific advances, and examines the impact of the current educational system and various cultural expectations on diverse gifted and creative science students including those with special needs. Furthermore, the Interplay of Creativity and Giftedness in Science provides a mechanism for communicating exemplary examples of programs, which have successfully combined creativity, giftedness, and science, across linguistic, cultural, racial, geographic, socioeconomic, and situational educational settings." --Page [4] of cover
