The Week Junior launches Science+Nature
Science+Nature, a new monthly magazine from the team behind The Week Junior, launched on September 1.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
Since it hit shelves in November 2015, The Week Junior has gone from strength to strength. Science+Nature responds to the public’s appetite for in-depth, high-quality, factual content for young people.
The new title is designed to ignite passion, inspire curiosity and stimulate discussion in eight to 15-year-olds. Every issue is jam-packed with topics, including animals, nature, space, environment, health, technology, history and more.
The eight-page Lab section features experiments and activities, as well as a monthly guide to the night sky for young stargazers. Also, a double-sided giant poster comes free with every issue.
Dan Green, Editor of Science+Nature and Author of the bestselling Basher Science books, said, “I'm immensely proud of Science+Nature. Our multi-talented team have put in an enormous amount of work and it really shows. Knowledge is power – we've brought together the best writers and experts to ensure that our readers get clear, accurate and fascinating information in a format that you genuinely can't find anywhere else.”
The magazine will be available to purchase from select WHSmith stores, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Tesco, Tesco Ireland and independent retailers. You can also subscribe here and pay £19.99 every six issues – 16% less than the price in store.
Science+Nature has a cover price of £3.49, with 60 pages, a double-sided poster with every issue and an initial print run of 13,614.
