15th WIN member society (since 06/2010)
sPIqr is an international society, founded on 18th February 2010 with the purpose of bringing together people who pass the 99.98 percentile in two or more selected IQ tests.
The acronym sPIqr derives from the Italian pronunciation of the crest S.P.Q.R., that is, “Senatus Populusque Romanus“. Furthermore, pi=3.1415… is the relationship between the diameter of a circle and its perimeter. In the mind of humankind, the circle has always represented the ideal of perfection. Obviously sPIqr also contains the letters “IQ“, which indicates the core element of this kind of virtual cafe.
The purpose of the sPIqr is to make people aware of how important the inclusion of gifted children is within the school system. Very often these brilliant children have to face up to a hostile environment that doesn’t allow them to fully express their abilities.
