Want to help kids learn more about science and the animal world? Then enroll them in the new Jr. Animal Scientist program. The program gives kids ages 5 to 12 a chance to 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 (published six times per year). The magazine contains resources for learning at home or in the classroom. The first issue focuses on the science of milk production.

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.

Members also receive a Jr. Animal Scientist water bottle and backpack.

Parents and educators can sign up for the program here. Educators can order the Jr. Animal Scientist magazine at a reduced rate.
