ESSAY ON: Only the Curious Will Learn

Number of Pages 5

This research paper: A 5 page paper assessing the validity of the statement, “only the curious will learn.” The motivation that a three-month-old baby has for finger play with her own hands does not constitute the same type of curiosity such as that which led Madame Curie to investigate radiation or drove Isaac Newton to intercept a ray of sunlight with a prism. Both types encourage learning, however. It all begins with a question, and there can be no questioning without curiosity driving its origin. The paper discusses Homer Hickam’s curiosity about rockets and subsequent development of intense desire to learn the same math, chemistry and physics that he had disdained before seeing the Soviet Sputnik fly over his West Virginia home in 1957. No sources listed.
