What do you think time is? How does it feel as the seconds tick by? Time is a key part of our life experience, but scientists can’t really agree on what it is! In this magazine, you can explore some time conundrums, make a shadow clock, craft a perpetual calendar and test how well you can judge time with some seriously silly 60-second games.

Discover ten of the oldest living things from an elderly tortoise to ancient trees, find out how cuckoo clocks work and discover cicadas, the intriguing insects that emerge from underground hideouts every few years. Turn loo roll tubes into cute jumping frogs, meet an astrophysicist who investigates spacetime and find out about Christiaan Huygens, the multi-talented scientist who invented the pendulum clock.

Time to get stuck in!
