OWL, the magazine for children 9 to 13, has relaunched with new content and a design update. The relaunch follows STEAM principles.
"STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics to help teach and inspire students," explains Jennifer Canham, group publisher, Owlkids. "Innovation is driving the future, and by using STEAM to develop our content we're encouraging our readers to learn through creation and discovery."The redesign includes a refreshed logo and new mascot. The September issue, which hits newsstands on August 18 at a promotional $2.50 price, features former Commander Chris Hadfield, who serves as guest editor and takes readers on a special space journey. OWL also introduces its Advisory Board, a group of experts who will contribute to the magazine over the coming year. This board includes Dr. Jennifer Gardy(BC Centre for Disease Control), Jonathan Moneta (MAKELAB), Ziya Tong(Daily Planet co-host) and Raymond Wang (Canadian Young Scientist Journal).
Complementing the relaunch issue's space theme is OWL's exciting "Out of this World" contest, inviting Canadian families to enter for the chance to win their very own space adventure to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida.OWL is published by Owlkids, a division of Bayard Canada and also publishes Chirp (ages 3-6), chickaDEE (ages 6 - 9) as well as Owlkids Books.
