Make yourself a sandwich and strap on your rucksack, as we prepare to investigate Incredible Journeys of all shapes and sizes. Meet the most intrepid members of the animal kingdom in our feature on marvellous migrations. Join us on a tour of the digestive tract as we reveal the (frankly disgusting) secrets of the stomach and try our grossest experiment ever. Make a magnifulous marble run and meet the Victorian explorer Sir John Franklin, whose attempts to navigate the Northwest passage led him to eat his own boot!
Join us in March for an AQUILA dedicated to the majesty of maths in all its glory. Celebrate Pi Day (yes, that is a real thing) by learning how to calculate pi using actual pies. Find out why a British billion is actually a lot smaller than it used to be. Discover how a Greek chap named Eratosthenes calculated the size of the Earth using nothing but a well, a pole and a bit of sunshine, and meet 15-year-old tech developer and social theorist Trisha Prabhu, who is setting out to change the way we behave on the Internet, forever.
AQUILA is a monthly educational magazine that will keep children entertained with intelligent, advert-free reading. Every issue contains factual articles, puzzles and fun activities that will enrich their general knowledge.
Absolutely – we steer clear of stereotyping as it is our intention to introduce all children to new and different ideas. Educational specialists recommend AQUILA because it widens children’s interest and understanding, rather than encouraging them to concentrate exclusively on their favourite/best subjects.
We can personalize your gift order to dispatch and arrive in time for a special occasion. For birthdays please enter the child’s birthday and a gift message when you make your order. We will note the birthday and dispatch the first magazine marked to open on the birthdate.
