Everything has a history: each person, plant, animal and object, our planet, and the entire universe.
Each history offers valuable insights. Together, they reveal even more. Big history weaves evidence and insights from many scientific and historical disciplines into a single, accessible origin story -- one that explores who we are, how we got here, how we are connected to everything around us, and where we may be heading.
The Big History Project is dedicated to fostering a greater love and capacity for learning among high school students. Started by Bill Gates and David Christian our goal is to get big history taught to as many students around the world as possible.
Find out more about big history by watching David's TED2011 talk. See how you can join the Project.
