Find out how the Victorians changed the world with inventions from telephones to light bulbs and steam engines to bicycles! You can also bring some Victorian science into your own home this issue by creating a spinning battery-powered motor, engineering a teeteringly tall tower and crafting some Victorian paper toys with clever moving parts.

Find out how steam trains work, marvel at some crazy Victorian inventions that didn’t catch on and meet super-smart ravens, the birds who can use tools, plan ahead and even hold grudges! You can also create a terrific time capsule that’s all about you, meet an engineer who works with modern-day steam turbines, read about Alexander Graham Bell who invented the telephone, and take our spaghetti engineering challenge!
