JSTP aims to increase number of competent children in science in Thai society by continuously working with the best candidates on science projects under the supervision of mentors. Researchers and scientists of national repute are invited to serve as mentors to the children, which has not been done in other programs. Three one-week enrichment camps are conducted in May, October and April and during long-weekends, some workshops are added. Activities include open-ended experiments, field trips (dealing with industry, environment, arts, history and culture), competitive intellectual games, special lectures and the Constructionism learning methods. Additionally, individual science projects of about 9 months duration are conducted under guidance from the mentoring team or otherwise invited expertise from other universities and research organizations. Observations and identifications are made by the mentoring team on student performance and potential. Throughout the period, creativity, learning and general behavior characteristics are identified through the abovementioned activities.
