What is Outside the Box?

Outside the Box (OTB) is an innovative program designed specifically for TAG & high-ability students entering grades 8-10 in Fall of 2020. Teens will  pursue topics of interest through a unique combination of in-depth, challenging academic explorations, group activities, and opportunities to explore expanded problem-solving through new experiences. The program offerings allow for self-discovery, excitement, and challenges to match students' interests and abilities. Participants select topics to expand current interests or investigate new areas while meeting others who share the same interests.

** Outside the Box is sponsored by OSU Precollege Programs, corporate and private donations and has been developed with guidance from an advisory board of OSU personnel, public school administrators, and area TAG specialists.
