      April issue: Chocolate

      AQUILA Magazine is full of beans this month! We find out how a creature no bigger than this full stop . is responsible for the whole world’s supply of cacao, and calculate the speed of light with a bar of chocolate, a ruler and a microwave. Children can join the fair trade debate, make some yummy chocolate bark and learn the science behind how our bodies process sugar. PLUS: meet the Ancient Maya who knew all about cocoa's energy-boosting magic. Includes AQUILA’s regular monthly dose of brain-feeding puzzles, letters and jokes.
