September: The Victorians
Why is a scientist called a scientist? What exactly are your 'never-mention-'ems'? Why did Queen Victoria own so many pugs?
Find the answers to all these questions and many more in our Virtuoso Victorians issue. Wordworm explores Victorian vernacular and EB takes a look at their (frankly rather odd) relationships with the animal kingdom. There is plenty to do too: construct a pinhole camera, make a puzzle purse and build your very own automaton, plus all the usual quizzes, brainfeeders and competitions. 'Tis a veritable banquet for the imagination!
October: The Invisible issue
Now you see us, now you don’t!
Our October issue is all about invisibility. EB has a look at camouflage in the natural world. Harvey explores the subject of static electricity, and shows you how to use the power of science to ACTUALLY TURN SOMETHING INVISIBLE! (Yes, we’re very excited about that too.) Aquila investigates the dramatic and decidedly murderous history of priest holes, and we discover how archaeologists use Xray vision, and a healthy dose of clever guesswork, to see what’s hidden under the ground. We’ve got all that plus makes, quizzes and competitions, that’s if we can find them… now where did I put those Brainfeeders… HARVEY?
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.
Shiver me timbers! It’s time for another spectacular summer double issue, and this time round we’re going Down Under in more ways than one. July’s issue is all about shipwrecks. We learn how submersibles work and have a go at making our very own.
