WHAT is the CLEOS project?

For creatively gifted young people, the path to the fulfillment of their talents is often a mystery. Unlike more traditional careers, vocations in fields such as the fine and performing arts, invention, and creative entrepreneurship and service don't have clear ladders.

On behalf of the University of Kansas Department of Psychology and Research in Education, we would like to introduce the CLEOS Project. Our goal is to assist high schoolers with unique and creative interests in finding their ideal future. In addition, we hope to gain invaluable insight into the development of creative individuals through  analysis of the assessments students take during their visit to the CLEOS lab.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the CLEOS experience.

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

- Albert Einstein
