This issue, we’re investigating the science of swimming, from some super slick swimmers of the animal kingdom to huge cumbersome submarines! Of course, there’s bucketloads of watery fun to be had as you paddle along – experiment with water resistance, craft a funky fish mobile and cut out a spinning diver wheel. Plus, draw a swimming stick figure and make it float!
Find out how Jacques Cousteau helped develop the first scuba gear and jump into the underwater world of marine biologist and conservationist Kelly Forsythe. See if you can work out which of our fun swimming and diving facts are true and which are false and take a close-up look at orcas.
"It's full of interesting ideas and activities - and jokes! My grandson (now 7) has been reading it for a couple of years now: he loves it and keeps going back to each issue."Lesley Burt
"The subscription was a Christmas pressie for my 9 year old - we both love the magazine and doing the experiments together. Great bonding and great opportunity to do practical science experiments! Amazing!!"Cesca Voo
"My 10 year old son and his friend spent 30 minutes reading this together, and forgot - actually forgot! - that I had permitted some gaming time for them this afternoon! Literally the first time that has ever happened. Thank you! "Flora
"My daughter received her first issue yesterday, and she loves it! I was impressed with the quality of the content, and the paper it's printed on. I took out the year subscription and folder on a whim and so glad I did! The extra touch was her name on the envelope."Ruth Louise
"A brilliant magazine which fills a real gap in the market. It’s fun, intelligent and very “do-able” for a wide range of ages and abilities."Carolyn Stroud
