Curiosity Helped The Child Succeed

“When I was in second or third grade, I started thinking about how can we use science and technology to create social change.” That’s a quote from Time's first-ever Kid of the Year 2020, 15-year-old Gitanjali Rao. In numerous interviews, Gitanjali has spoken about how her achievements and pursuits in creating inventions are rooted in her sense of curiosity about how to solve problems around her. We find out from Dr Rajini Sarvananthan what value curiosity brings to children’s development, and how to nurture this trait.
