There are 2 separate questions here.
1. Curiosity Intro
Watch this short video from Neil DeGrasse Tyson on children’s instinctive curiosity:
What were you curious about as a child (it doesn’t have to be a STEM curiosity)? Did it get “beaten out” of you in school and high school as Dr. Tyson says so often happens? How so? If not, what have you done to continue to foster that curiosity?
Read or listen to the podcast (Links to an external site.) of Mario Livio’s book about curiosity. https://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/makes-us-curious/
Then, post to the discussion board the following:
- What have you always wanted to know more about?
- Why are you curious about this topic?
