Students with high abilities or giftedness need a stimulating environment for the full development of their potential, considering their interests and learning styles. In this perspective, the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) proposed by Joseph Renzulli aims to expand service opportunities, providing skills development and valuing the investigative learning. SEM is based on a Triadic Enrichment Model, with three main types of activities, which expose students to situations with which they have no contact in the regular curriculum, develop creative thinking and apply knowledge. Faced with a society concerned with the future of the planet, the UN implemented, in 2015, the 2030 Agenda with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which conciliate sustainable development on a global scale. Therefore, Science Education must provide the requirements for students to reflect, develop and point out solutions to the problems faced by the planet, seeking to protect it from degradation. In this sense, an Enrichment based on the SDGs aims to develop the skills related to the conscious use of environmental resources, where the student is aware of his role in society and contributes to sustainable development. This study is part of the Thematic Project "University-Public School Collaboration in the development of more inclusive policies, practices and cultures" and will consist of two stages: the first consists in mapping the interests of the students indicated with high abilities or giftedness, and the second stage will be the elaboration and application of the Enrichment activities. Due to the pandemic scenario of the new coronavirus, this study presents a digital proposal for Curriculum Enrichment, with remote activities so that students can keep in touch with knowledge and to continue advance in learning.
