How do I make my child want to learn: Spark your kid’s curiosity with “awe”

Have you ever witnessed a child's eyes widen with wonder as they watched a video or gasp in amazement at a mind-blowing science experiment? That sense of awe – a feeling of wonder and amazement – is a powerful tool that can be harnessed to ignite a lifelong love of learning in kids.


A recent study by researchers at the Rutgers University, explored the connection between awe and children's intrinsic motivation to learn. The study found that children who experienced awe were more likely to be curious, ask questions, and engage deeply with learning experiences.


So, how can you use awe to spark a passion for learning in your own child? Here are a few tips:


  1. Embrace Everyday Awe

Awe doesn't require elaborate outings or expensive resources. Point out the wonders of the natural world, like the intricate details of a flower or the vastness of the ocean. Even everyday activities can be awe-inspiring – baking a cake can showcase the science of chemistry, while building a blanket fort fosters creativity and imagination.


  1. Let Curiosity Be Your Guide

Follow your child's lead and explore their interests. If they're fascinated by dinosaurs, visit a natural history museum or read books about prehistoric creatures. If they love building things, take them to a hardware store or let them tinker with old toys.


  1. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Instead of simply providing information, ask questions that encourage critical thinking and exploration. "What do you think makes the sky blue?" or "How do you think this machine works?" can spark meaningful conversations and ignite a desire to learn more.


  1. Spark Awe Through STEM Activities

Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) offer countless opportunities to cultivate awe and wonder. Conduct simple experiments at home, build a model volcano, or explore the night sky with a telescope.


Here are some specific STEM products that can spark awe in children:
