The new Jr. Animal Scientist program helps kids learn more about science and the animal world. Kids ages 5 to 12 can explore science careers and study the lives of pets, farm animals and zoo animals.

All Jr. Animal Scientists receive a full year subscription to Jr. Animal Scientist magazine. The magazine has great resources for learning at home or in the classroom:

- Articles written just for kids to explain scientific concepts. The first issue focuses on the science of milk production. Future issues will focus on concepts like thermoregulation and genetics.

- Full-color photographs and graphics to illustrate the science. Kids can see how scientific research is relevant in their lives.

- Articles about scientists with interesting careers. The first issue of the magazine includes a profile of Jeff Ettling, a herpetologist who works at the Saint Louis Zoo.

- Activity pages that reinforce scientific concepts from previous articles. These pages also complement classroom lessons on animals, science and agriculture.

- Do-it-yourself activities where students can see science in action.

Jr. Animal Scientists can also access a special section of AnimalSmart.org. This section features extra articles about animal science and graphics that complement articles in the magazine.

Educational resources are a main feature of the Jr. Animal Scientist program, but there are even more perks. Members also receive a Jr. Animal Scientist water bottle and backpack.

Parents and educators can sign up for the program at AnimalSmart.org/JrAS

Educators can also order the Jr. Animal Scientist magazine at a reduced rate. Educators can find additional resources on AnimalSmart.org. The AnimalSmart.org Kids’ Zone has graphics and articles about pets, farm animals and zoo animals.
