Hi everyone! Welcome to my first research round for my new cycle. My new inquiry question is: “How is education connected to intelligence and success?”.

I’ve decided to cover topics such as what intelligence is, how it is measured, how it varies across the world and different types of intelligence.Read More...

What was the first piece of technology?, What we're the different...Read More...

Effect of condition of pregnancy on child development Round 4

So in this post, I will be talking (or well writing) about how the mother’s voice impacts the fetus, and how the baby could start learning in the womb. As I explained in my last post, fetuses can hear pretty well in the womb (comparing to thinking they can’t hear at all) but now research suggests that they can understand sounds too. This topic is highly debated because we still don’t know if humans are born being able to understand speech or if we have to learn it afterwards, but I want to...Read More...
