Within the scope of educational programs in the Science and Art Centers in Turkey, teachers try to develop programs for determining individuals' readiness level, orientation, support education, developing awareness of individual talents and special talents. The aim of the present study is to identify the problems that Turkish science teachers encounter within this process. The research which employed one of the qualitative methods, the interview, was carried out in January, 2009. The participants were 4 science teachers working at Kırıkkale and Giresun Science and Art centers (SAC). The data were collected by means of standardized open-ended interview technique. The most significant result of the study illustrated that teachers believe there should definitely be an educational program, but it should be flexible enough.
