WHIZZ POP BANG the awesomely amazing science magazine for kids!

Who are we?

We publish Whizz Pop Bang, the world’s most awesomely amazing kids’ science magazine, bursting with hands-on experiments, facts and fun for girls and boys!

Whizz Pop Bang was launched in August 2015, following a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. Physics graduate and science communicator Jenny Inglis set up Launchpad Publishing in order to create a top-quality, gender-neutral, advert-free magazine for families everywhere, including her own three children, who are always more than happy to test experiments and activities at home!

Over the last few years, Launchpad Publishing has grown to become a close-knit team of passionate writers, editors, customer service superstars, communicators, data managers and designers, not to mention our fabulously creative illustrator, Clive Goodyer. Together, we’re hugely proud to be delivering awesome, inspirational science magazines to tens of thousands of families and schools each month.

Why do we make Whizz Pop Bang?

Our aim is simple – to help children develop a love of science. As the budding scientists, engineers and innovators who will shape the future of our world, we love to imagine what Whizz Pop Bang readers might one day discover!

What is Whizz Pop Bang?

Whizz Pop Bang is a 36-page children’s magazine jam-packed with science fun! Printed on lovely, thick, uncoated paper (so that kids can colour, scribble and record their science results in it), it’s a top-quality magazine that’s built to last. Each month’s issue focuses on a new and interesting subject, with broad-ranging content to appeal to all budding scientists aged between six and twelve. Have a flick through a virtual copy of Whizz Pop Bang here.

Each month’s magazine is written by expert science writers, such as Isabel Thomas, author of more than 100 children’s science books. Each magazine is full of facts, puzzles, news and simple hands-on experiments that can easily be done at home or in school, giving parents, teachers and kids the tools to become scientists in their kitchens and classrooms!

We believe that kids make the best scientists. WHY? Because they’re inquisitive, keen to learn and have open minds that just love asking "Why...?"!
