Young Scientists Reader Pte Ltd is established as an associate firm to the publishing firm Young Scientists Pte Ltd which produces the much-loved Young Scientists monthly magazine.
Young Scientists Reader aims to promote the learning of Science among school children using exciting and engaging methods because it is getting ever more challenging to attract the focus of the younger generation of children in order for them to learn and retain the necessary information to excel in their Science studies.
An innovative medium to deliver syllabus-based Science information that captivates the attention of school children is through the use of a comic-based magazine with stories and topics centred on a Lower Block or Upper Block Science subject. It is through the guiding principles of this medium that the Young Scientists magazine is borne.
Young Scientists Reader strives to continuously work towards improving and maintaining the quality of the content so that your child will enjoy and benefit from the Young Scientists magazine.
