    Hi I'm planning to do my EPQ on 'Whether the development of a scientific genius is down to nature or nurture' but I'm finding it difficult to decide on the way I should go about it

    I'm thinking of trying to define scientific genius with a few key characteristics (Creativity, Ability to focus at great lengths on a single task, etc) and then explore whether nature or nurture can provide the best explanation for this.

    Any suggestions as to how I could improve this

    Thank you so much for your help

    why don't you talk in terms of academic ability and achievement rather than 'scientific genius' as it seems a little ambiguous and open to interpretation

    Yh I need to really define what I mean by genius first before anything else

    Are there any features or characteristics of the 'highly intelligent/genius' that I could explore

    I'm also having a bit of difficulty in organising an interview. Any ideas how to go about doing this
