8:30 AM - 10:00 AM Wednesday, March 16
Curiosity is the foundation of lifelong learning. But what does curiosity look like? In many ways, curiosity takes the form of exploration when put into action. Exploration—be it the vastness of space or the simplicity of one’s own backyard—is what truly drives learning. Bill Nye believes in the power of exploration. It’s through exploration that discoveries made by the human species expand the possibilities for future discoveries. In this keynote Bill Nye will take you on a journey of exploration, where you will discover how enabling people to act on their curiosity can tap into natural lifelong learning.
