The Power of Curiosity

OX's very own Renée Watson at TEDxAthens

Renee power intro 2

Our incomporable science writer, Renée Watson, was recently onstage at TEDxAthens asking, 'Is curiosity the secret to a wonder-filled life?'

She's the founder and Head of Explosions at Curiosity Box, a STEM activity subscription box scheme that's spread the love of science to countless young people of all age groups. Last year she was named by Melinda Gates as one six women in STEM to watch. She's now championing a move away from test-led classrooms in primary education and advocating for an approach that puts a child's innate curiosity at the forefront at learning. If all this wasn't enough, Renée will be co-captaining the European over-35s team at the Touch Rugby World Cup. We're priviliged to have this real-life superwoman on our team here at OX - and here she is in her own words...
