In celebration of Valentine’s Day we’re looking at relationships – investigating family relationships and the relationships between different types of chemical elements. We’ve also unearthed some exciting new scientific research on forests – who would have guessed that the trees outside your window are busy communicating with each other through their roots?!
Cut out and assemble your own family tree, craft your family in finger puppets, make a model of your DNA and test your tiling skills with some tangram animals. You can also discover how the lock in your front door works, meet a primatologist, find out almost everything there is to know about elephants and be astounded by 10 Awesomely Amazing Record Breaking Animal Features. We also tell the fascinating story of the Gregor Mendel, the scientist who discovered the basic laws of genetics long before we even knew genes existed!
"This has to be without doubt the best magazine we've bought for our 7 y/o. He's now built his first electrical circuit, and is examining samples under a microscope.... as well as reading each page (on his own) with enthusiasm:-)"Steve Porteous
"I can’t praise this magazine enough! It has so much amazing information for children but doesn’t talk down to them. Such a great value subscription!! Thank you for producing the perfect magazine!!"Michele Clement
"I have to say this is brilliant. My 11-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy absolutely love it. Loads of things to do, colour, facts and experiments and the best and biggest thing of all... they don't want their screens. Definitely worth every penny. You will not be let down, I promise."Rebecca McGlone
