History of International Ask a Question Day
International Ask a Question Day takes place on the birthday of Albert Einstein (born 1879). As part of what he has represented, this holiday focuses on the importance of curiosity, questioning and inspiring learning for future generations.
In learning about the life of this hugely influential scientist, Einstein's admirers are reminded that he was responsible for developing special and general theories of relativity. His theory of relativity, along with the equation E = MC2, helped change physicists' understanding of space.
Einstein's work in the field of physics eventually predicted the creation of the controversial atomic bomb. And his understanding of light, in which light is both a wave and a stream of particles, helped shape modern quantum mechanics. For his work, he won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 and became one of the most famous and inspiring scientists of the 20th century.
Over the past decade, International Ask a Question Day encourages both the young and the old to learn how to ask them. This allows people all over the world to continue to bring a sense of curiosity into their lives.
Asking questions can do more than just help gather information. It allows people to build better relationships, helps create awareness, supports clear thinking, solves problems, challenges assumptions, sets goals, and more. Asking questions can make all the difference for people who are making important decisions, and it can be crucial to a person's development throughout their life.

Teachers and parents of school-age children should consider doing big on this day. Make a bulletin board display to give children an opportunity to ask their most pressing questions and put them on the board. As many previous scientists and innovators have pointed out, the curiosity of asking questions can fuel creativity and motivate children to grow up and find answers in the world!
- Provide an open opportunity, either in the classroom or in a plenary session, for children to ask questions of an expert in science, music, art, or some other field. Children can submit their questions first so the expert can prepare answers. There are no stupid questions, which is the most important thing to remember.
- In honor of his birthday, create a display with fun facts about Albert Einstein. Then have the children pose questions that they will ask Einstein if he is still alive today.
