WHY US?

Inquire is a venture by members of ThinQ, a collective of educators committed to Inquiry and Integration in Education. The materials we use have been developed by educators with decades of experience across school, university and adult education. We come from institutions like Stanford, NUS, UArizona, and IISER.

Inquire's revenue goes towards supporting ThinQ's activities and its members so that we can work towards our goal of improving education at all levels.


WHY LEARN TO INQUIRE, THINK CRITICALLY AND INTEGRATE?

When we talk about inquiring and thinking critically, we are referring to the process of creating and evaluating knowledge. This ability is crucial in today's world, where we are constantly bombarded with information and opinions. In order to make sense of this information and come to considered conclusions, we need to be able to evaluate the validity of what we are hearing.

To do this, we need to understand the nature of justification. Different fields have different standards for what counts as good justification, so it is helpful to be able to justify claims and construct knowledge in a way that is accepted within a given domain. This not only helps us evaluate knowledge, but also enables us to be more creative and innovative.

In today's world, it is essential to be creative and innovative in order to avoid being replaced by automation. Coming up with new ideas and being able to justify them is key to success. One way to do this is by integrating ideas from different disciplines and functional areas, which can often lead to breakthroughs and significant impact.

TESTIMONIALS

Watch our first group of students give their feedback:


SIGN UP AS AN INDIVIDUAL

Interested in signing up? For now, we are only accepting groups of 4-8 students between 12 and 18. We are happy to work with mixed age groups - in fact, we have found a lot of value for both younger and older learners in mixed groups.

We currently only have the capacity to work with two simultaneous groups. We will only look to scale when we have confidence that the quality will not suffer. For now we apologize if we are not able to work with you immediately.

Fill out this application form and we will contact you:






SIGN UP AS A SCHOOL

For schools, we offer virtual as well as in-person programs. However, the in-person programs are only being offered in New Delhi, India currently. We are willing to work with groups of up to 20 students at a time. If you are interested, book an appointment with our team at the link below to have a first conversation:
