Curiosity Retreats 2016
Greetings from CuriosityStream! I’m pleased to announce the speakers for our next Curiosity Retreat, to be hosted October 2-7, 2016 at Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa.
Led by Doris Kearns Goodwin, Alan Stern and David Eagleman, our Curiosity Retreat will feature eight world-class speakers leading four days of “deep dive” exploration of science, technology, civilization and the human spirit. All lectures will be filmed so that we may share them on CuriosityStream with our community of inquisitive minds. As well, the retreats allow participants to interact directly with the speakers in small breakout sessions in between lectures. Our 2016 lineup includes:
