“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Stephen Hawkings
Perhaps our ability to accept, even celebrate change can help us to think like a genius.
WGBY airs the beginning of Genius by Stephen Hawking on Wednesday, May 18, at 9pm. In each of six episodes, the renowned scientist presents three ordinary people with a series of physical and mental challenges to show them how to think like a genius.
You can find resources on Stephen Hawking, including a lesson plan in which students learn about him – his personal history, his struggle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), his thought processes and how he developed his groundbreaking ideas about Black Holes, the Big Bang, and the discovery of Hawking Radiation. Just search “Stephen Hawking” at PBS LearningMedia.
