From a weekend of philosophical debate to a get-together in the pub, Mensa members have plenty of opportunity to get out and about with other Mensans. Many events offer inspiring speakers or behind the scenes visits not generally available to the public.

The society also hosts occasional events open to non-members, including the prestigious Mensa at Cambridge weekend each summer.

Gifted & Talented

One of Mensa's core aims is to 'identify and foster human intelligence'. With that in mind, the board of British Mensa appointed a gifted child consultant and established the Mensa Gifted and Talented Support Programmes, to assist educators in their work with gifted young people and to support young members and their families.

British Mensa has about 1,700 members under the age of 18. They are full members of the society, and are offered the same range of benefits as adult members -  magazines and newsletters, special interest groups and social events. They are encouraged to join their own group - Junior & Teen - and take part in Family Mensa events arranged across the country.

In addition, our gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall works with Mensa to create support programmes and events for people living and working with gifted children.

To watch the ITV Central News series Bright Sparks, which examined some of the issues around being and bringing up gifted children, click here.

Identifying Gifted Children

Mensa's G&T advice leaflet offers information and advice about gifted children, as well as details of other organisations which can help, and further reading on the subject.

Check out our special Gifted and Talented advice articles such as Gifted Children - a checklist for parents

The Mensa Supervised IQ Test is suitable for children aged over ten and a half years. Younger children should be assessed by an educational psychologist to find out their IQ score - your local health authority or education authority can help you to find professionals in your area. They can then apply by providing Prior Evidence.

Does your child prefer Charles Dickens to Cbeebies, or do they find school boring and unchallenging? You could have a bright spark on your hands!

Events

From a weekend of philosophical debate to a get-together in the pub, Mensa members have plenty of opportunity to get out and about with other Mensans. Many events of national interest, found here under Featured Events, offer inspiring speakers or behind the scenes visits not generally available to the public.

The society also hosts occasional events open to non-members, including the prestigious Mensa at Cambridge weekend each summer.

Any member can add an event to the calendar - click here to find out how.  Make sure you let your regional meetings co-ordinator (contact details in the Regions pages) know as well, so it can be included in the Mensa Magazine.
