Awesome Conversation Topics and Discussion Questions

Awesome Conversation Topics and Discussion Questions

An intriguing topic is often the best way to get the family nattering after a long day, or a couple of pals speaking for the very first time.

With mobile phones becoming more and more embedded into our palms every day, we've put this comprehensive topic guide together to get kids and adults alike off their technology and encourage mindfulness and connections through good old-fashioned face-face conversation around the dinner table.

Every month, we ask our super talented tutors to sum up, "In a Nutshell", an awesome idea or mind-boggling concept to get you talking at the dinner table. The best entries every month will be featured in their own topic chapter.

Our In a Nutshell topics will expand your mind whilst the handy discussion questions will get your conversations flowing: win-win!

Chapter 2: Quantum Physics in a nutshell

Chapter 3: Our smartphones are made of (dead) stars
