Duke University's Talent Identification Program, a summer course of study that for 3 weeks, let kids in grades 8 through 11 earn school credit or partial college credit for a desired course. Courses range from Robotics to Algebra II to Java Programming to Short Fiction. It is not only held on both East and West Duke Campuses, but also at Davidson and several other locations throughout the United States. Most participants find it an enjoyable escape from the ordinarily dull classes and find it a new experience, away from the old rules of conformity. There has been traditionally greater tolerance for a more diverse group of individual sub-cultures, but repeated and intolerable disregarding of authority may bring a stop to this.
