In 1957, psychologist Dr. Harold McCurdy investigated the lives of twenty well-known geniuses. He wanted to find out if there was something about their childhoods that made them become geniuses. In the end, he found three things that all of them had in common while growing up. What’s fascinating is that these three elements are typically present in the lives of modern homeschooled children. In this talk, Dr. Wile will present the details of the study and its conclusions, and he will give anecdotes and practical advice that will help you incorporate these elements into your homeschooling experience.

Dr. Jay Wile holds an earned Ph.D. in nuclear chemistry and a B.S. in chemistry, both from the University of Rochester. He has won several awards for excellence in teaching and is an internationally-known speaker, having presented lectures on the topics of nuclear chemistry, Christian apologetics, homeschooling, and creation vs. evolution in several different countries. He is best known for his award-winning K-12 science textbooks designed specifically for the homeschool. Dr. Wile and his wife of more than thirty years, Kathleen, homeschooled their daughter, Dawn, from the time they adopted her until she graduated high school. Dawn is a Butler University graduate and owns a speciality shipping company (Paws Logistics) with her husband, James.
