Curiosity Day!

Part of our new partnership with Encyclopaedia Britannica includes Curiosity Day! #CuriosityDay invites you to ask questions, uncover stories, and share them with the world, in order to inspire a life-long love of learning.

Watch the video below:

This year, the theme is to get curious about our planet, investigate how life on Earth has evolved, discover the actions that refresh and stabilize the climate, and challenge ourselves and those with the most power to make changes. To launch the year-long endeavour, Britannica partnered with Christopher Lloyd, author and CEO of What on Earth Books, to lead Britannica’s Curiosity Day student events at Shireland Technology Primary in Smethwick, West Midlands, UK.

#EncyclopaediaBritannica Inspiring curiosity and the joy of learning since 1768.
