What is the Curious Class?

Previous Next

People who make up the Curious Class are people from all walks of life - interested in the world, individuals, and things around them. They are interested in why that thing works like that. Why does this person smile in this moment? What's the reason why? The Curious Class knows that the education you get outside of school is just as valuable as anything you learned behind a desk. That said, both (and so many other things) are pretty great as long as it sparks an interest or new discovery.
