Erupting with science fun, this edition focuses on volcanoes and extreme environments. We’ve got a brand new PULLOUT section of the magazine where you can make your own model volcanoes and we also meet a daring volcanologist who explores volcanic craters for a living. You’ll find experiments with lava flows and volcanic eruptions and you can have a go at winning a Triop Set to hatch your very own pet triops creatures at home (competition closing date: 5th June 2016). You can also discover some crazy creatures that live in unlikely places, including the tiny water bear that can survive for hundreds of years without food or water! Take a canter with TV vet Joe Inglis as he turns his attention to horses and then read all about early geologist and explorer, Charles Lyell. You can also find out about Britain’s endangered wild seahorses and discover 10 awesomely amazing Masters of Disguise!
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
