Latest reviews for Whizz Pop Bang science magazine for kids!

Father with daughter reading Whizz Pop Bang science magazine

“My challenging day is immediately brightened by the appearance of my daughter’s Whizz Pop Bang magazine on the kitchen table. Once again I am moved to tears by the sheer enthusiasm and creative genius that unfolds before my eyes. I cannot express how moved I am by the high level of dedication blatantly apparent in this work. Keep it up, you are all awesome and a shining light in a world where cohesive design and creativity is so often lacking.”
Chris Else (father of 3)

 

“Loving this edition of @whizzpopbangmag @TheDistrictCE 😃We are definitely going to play this game! So, so much brilliantly written info”
Mrs McFarlane

 

“Lots of whooping yesterday as the new edition arrived. Everything else was dumped as the competition was immediately boshed off, then we all learnt lots of crazy, interesting and gross facts which were read out to us enthusiastically. Such a great mag for kids. Thanks!”

Whizz Pop Bang chromatography flowers

FLOWER POWER chromatography competition entries and winners!

In our FLOWER POWER issue Whizz Pop Bang readers learnt how to use the power of science to make these gorgeously frilly flowers. Paper chromatography is a neat little science trick that you can use to easily separate the different coloured inks out of felt tip pens.

Readers sent in their photos to enter the flower power competition to win a nature keeper tree diary set. As you’ll appreciate it was a tough job choosing just three winners – you should all be winners for producing these colourful creations! However, there could only be three winners and here they are:

Lula Brown, Aged 9
Isabel Soden, Aged 8
Jasper Warner, Aged 5
Congratulations, you have all won a Learning Resources Nature Keeper and Tree Diary Set perfect for summer science in the garden! Have a browse through all the entries for the competition, so many beautiful flowers and budding young scientists… 🌸 💐 🌼

After a few patient weeks of waiting Evie receives a reply! Such a wonderful look of pride and achievement on Evie’s face, evidence that writing to your local MP really does work! Mr Crudas explains he has sent a copy of her letter to Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, and he’s also looking into what has happened to the playground equipment. Well done Evie, we’re super impressed with your passion and determination to make a difference.

Whizz Pop Bang science magazine for kids issues six to eighteen

 

ROLE: EDITORIAL ASSISTANT

Whizz Pop Bang is growing, in every direction! Kids and their families are loving our magazine and are telling their friends, families and teachers all about what an awesome job we’re doing inspiring kids in science. We’re also moving out of Jenny’s house and into a proper office which is very exciting! So we need more science-loving experts to join our little team. Are you a STEM ambassador? Have you got what it takes to help us to be the best children’s science magazine across the land???

We’re looking for an editorial assistant, someone who has experience and a passion for all things science to become part of our close-knit team. This role would be ideally suited to someone with a background or qualification in science communication.

This is a sought-after position for a talented and capable individual who would relish the opportunity to inspire children in science. The position offers the opportunity to work from our friendly Cirencester office, whilst also having the flexibility to work from home on occasions. Working hours can fit around school times if necessary, and will be based on three days a week.

Role responsibilities include

  • Editing contributors’ copy
  • Proofreading of final PDFs
  • Writing and/or checking of puzzles
  • Possible writing of content – depending on skill set
  • Commissioning and liaising with writers, designers and illustrators
  • Input into the planning of magazines
  • Writing and editing marketing copy, newsletters, blog posts, website copy and social media posts as required

Person specification

  • We’re looking for someone who can inspire children and can write and edit engaging and informative editorial. Prior editorial experience is required, preferably in the children’s sector, and we’re ideally looking for someone with a science background.
  • We require someone with an excellent level of written English – first-rate knowledge of spelling, punctuation and grammar are all requirements of this job. As an educational publisher, it is vital that we maintain an extremely high standard of spelling and grammar.
  • There is exciting potential for this role to expand and evolve to include more responsibilities as Launchpad Publishing continues to grow.

12 Days of Christmas Edible Science fun

Hello science-lovers! We’re super excited the Christmas issue of science magazine Whizz Pop Bang! Do you know the brilliant, crazy and uber creative Greg Foot? He’s the science guy on YouTube and presents science on Blue Peter, have you seen him? Well Greg has put together 12 awesome edible science experiments that really are the best entertainment for a very amusing (and tasty) family Christmas.

whizz-pop-bang-science-magazine-for-kids-issue-17

And here are the 12 edible experiments, if you’d like to try these hop over and buy a copy of the Whizz Pop Bang Christmas issue here.

 

Remember experiments are experiments, which means you may not get them right first time – you’re scientists experimenting! If the lightning isn’t coming out of your sister’s mouth when you’re in the cupboard under the stairs don’t despair! Wait a little longer and try again, your eyes need to get really accustomed to the dark, and crunch really hard with your mouth open – you may dribble a little 🙂

Our raisins didn’t dance the first time, so we tried again with fizzier water. The lava toffee can be tricky too, add a little water if you need to and be careful with the hot pan in all that excitement.

We filmed our kids playing with the weird custard go, see their reactions here: whizz-pop-bang-science-experiment-custard-goo

Do you have questions about these experiments or Whizz Pop Bang? Send us an email hello@whizzpopbang.com and we’ll be only too happy to help.
