The Singapore Scientist
The first Science magazine for kids on our list is the Singapore Scientist.

Reading is the key to all education even if it has to do with something so hands-on like science
Science Adventures might not be a magazine but it still has a chock full of science trivia in between comic illustrations. The people behind the comic/magazine have set out to create a wonderful mix of storytelling, eye-grabbing graphics and kid-friendly science contests. The concept of having a magazine in the format of a comic is great for young learners as it helps them grasp scientific concepts faster and more effectively.
Cost: S$55.00 per level (there are four levels of books)
Where to purchase: The magazines can be purchased at all Popular Bookstore outlets islandwide.
