THE founder of a science magazine for children will be celebrating a special milestone next month.

Physics graduate and mother-of-three Jenny Inglis came up with idea of Whizz Pop Bang magazine during discussions around a kitchen table in Aldsworth in 2015.

Eight years later more than 1.7 million magazines have been sold and next month the 100th edition will be published. 

Jenny now lives in Thrupp near Stroud and the local team work from an office in Love Lane, Cirencester.

The monthly magazine is written for children aged between six and twelve years old.

The magazine has featured many local scientists throughout the years, including Jon Scott from Poulton who works for the European Space Agency and Jenny’s husband Joe Inglis who is an TV vet and animal expert. 

Many local schools also use Whizz Pop Bang magazines along with the accompanying downloadable teaching resources, which won a Teach Primary Award in 2021.

The 100th edition will be packed with experiments and activities that scientists-in-training can recreate.

Facts from lots of famous scientists such as astronaut Tim Peake, author Adam Kay and TV presenter Maddie Moate will also be included in this special anniversary edition.

Jenny said: “I launched Whizz Pop Bang to help more children realise that science is for them – it’s for everyone! 

"There’s so much fun to be had by experimenting and investigating at home with everyday objects. 

"I’m super proud that we’ve reached this milestone and look forward to continuing to help thousands more children enjoy science in the years to come.”
