Get Kids Excited About Science with KNOW Magazine!

One of my sons is a senior in high school, and he wants to major in a biology-related field in college. These days, that’s pretty unusual. Researchers tell us that the United States falls behind other countries in the number of young adults who are pursuing careers in science. One of the ways to change this dreadful statistic is to get kids excited about science at an early age. Science magazines for kids are a terrific way to do this!

KNOW Magazine, published by Mad Science, is geared toward children ages 6 to 9 and uses fun facts, games, puzzles, experiments and articles to make science fun and relevant for kids! It is published six times a year and is free of outside advertising. They cover topics like space, the human body, animals, and much more!

Would you like to check out KNOW Magazine? Click here to download a free copy of the Sept./Oct. issue. Do this with your kids so they can see all the great stuff inside! This issue focuses on shapes and patterns. My boys loved looking for the hidden pets in this issue and checking out the creepy see-through frog! Since we live in Florida, they were especially interested in the article on sea stars. This issue even shows you how to do string art! It’s chock-full of interactive and fun activities for kids in elementary school.

You can learn more about KNOW Magazine and subscribe at www.knowmag.ca. If your children are between the ages of 10-15, they’ll love YES Mag at www.yesmag.ca. Subscribing to these magazines is a wonderful way to instill a love of science in your children.
