2015 Issue Themes
Ssshh! Don't tell the kids!


January Catching Fire
What is fire? Who discovered it? And how has it changed us?
Possible stories: The �Explain Flame� Challenge, judged by kids; first fire-users; why cook?; faking fire in film; fighting fires (but not too scary)
Pitches by: 5/15/14
February Between the Tides
Exploring the soggy world of shorelines and tidepools, between land and water.
Possible stories: Vernal pools; profile of a shore ecosystem; making beaches; wetlands; riverbanks; animals that live wet and dry
Pitches by: 6/1/14
March Other Earths
Are there other habitable planets out there?
Possible stories: Exoplanet hunting, Kepler telescope and beyond; what do we mean by �life�? What might life on an alien world look like? And could we ever get there? What about moons like Europa or Enceladus?
Pitches by: 7/1/14


Happy pitching!
