Some kids are born with a natural affinity for music or the ability to tell stories from the time they learn to talk. Others, however, wind up on the other end of the spectrum and are born with a proverbial beaker in their hand. If your kid has memorized the entire periodic table of elements, conducts science experiments at home before they're even in school, and can list off facts like it's their job, learning all of the early signs your kid will be good at science is second nature to you by now. To say your child is "gifted" is probably as true a label as you can assign your little genius, and science will no doubt be their weapon of choice for expressing themselves.
According to the National Association for Gifted Children, a gifted child is one who can "demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude (defined as an exceptional ability to reason and learn) or competence (documented performance or achievement in top 10 percent or rarer) in one or more domains." And if science is your child's "domain" of choice, you'll know it from an early age. The same resource stated that oftentimes children will start demonstrating signs of their intelligence or tendency to focus on one subject over the others from toddlerhood or even before. So though these traits will certainly set your child apart, learning to work with their love for all things science will help them reach new heights of success.
