From Mom Central: Statistics show that the number of young adults pursuing careers in science in the U.S. pales in comparison to other countries. But taking steps to bring science alive for kids at a young age can make a huge difference. Mad Science, the world's leading science enrichment provider, launched KNOW Magazine, a publication specifically designed to engage and excite children at an age when science proves as important as math, reading and writing.
Geared to children 6 to 9, KNOW Magazine provides kids with age-appropriate articles, fun science and technology facts, games, puzzles, and experiments. With six issues per year all free of outside advertising, the magazine covers everything from dinosaurs and animals, to the solar system and the human body to keep kids engaged year-round. The magazine's educational focus combines learning and entertainment in a way Moms can feel good about.
My take: In school, I can say in all modesty, that I truly did excel and enjoy my science classes. And math and history classes. What can I say, I was not your typical girl! It's no wonder I turned to accounting for a career choice but I've often wondered what would have happened if I had continued down a scientific career path. And I cannot wait to see what careers my own children end up pursuing. Whatever it is, I know an early interest in, and exposure to, science will only help them down that path. But how to interest them early? I'm thinking a permanent subscription to KNOW magazine might be the answer. Kind of like a written Sesame Street episode (I say that because of the short, one page articles), KNOW is the perfect introduction to science in the every day for your child. From Shapes and Patterns to poetry to a cartoon strip and an experiment to try at home, KNOW
addresses science from all angles and interests. This "science magazine for curious kids" was a big hit with my 8 year old and with me! Thanks Mom Central for telling us about the magazine - we can't wait for the next one!
