Young Skeptics club is committed to teach children how to think not what to think.
Critical thinking is one of the main competencies needed in XXI century, established by European and world class organizations. We understand that it is more important to teach children to decide on their own and not just blindly follow the given statements without thinking about them critically. At the Young Skeptics club children are being encouraged to ask questions, gain knowledge and challenge the ideas they are given.
