Curiosity

Our new life skill is Curiosity. Curiosity is the desire to want to learn and find out about new things. Curiosity is the drive that helps humans continue to learn and grow. It causes us to explore the unknown in search of answers. If you are curious about a topic there are so many ways you can learn more...books, the internet, investigating, interviewing an expert, exploring nature, experimenting and more!
