Young Philosophers Club: Never Too Early to Ask Big Questions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

NOTE: This session is designed for YouthWise participants who are 8-12 years old.

You know all those big questions that keep rattling around in your head, the ones that won’t go away, and that have more than one answer? In this session, we'll celebrate your drive to ask these kinds of questions, and we’ll learn fun and empowering ways to explore a whole lot of different answers. We’ll learn what a philosopher is and does (hint: you probably are one, and you’re probably already doing it), and we’ll find out how young thinkers can dive into topics like robots, the environment, and even art. We’ll celebrate the word “Why”, and find out how thinking about things a little more deeply can help us in so many areas of our lives.

What will you learn or experience as a result of this program or session?
  • Celebrate your desire to ask big questions.
  • Find out how big questions pop up in our everyday lives.
  • Learn to look at an idea from many different perspectives.

How might the content of this program or session change your perceptions, habits, ways of working, or view on the world?
  • Asking big questions can change us, and change the world.
  • Asking big questions is a very old practice that’s been happening around the world for thousands of years.
  • You’re never too young to be a philosopher!

How might you apply what you learn or experience in this program or session?
  • Think a little more deeply about what we hear and see in the media.
  • Understand other people a little better (even if we disagree with them).
  • Find creative solutions to problems, in your own lives, in our communities, and around the world.
