Review:
Odyssey provides readers ages 9-14 with adventures in science. Each issue has a guest "Consulting Editor," who is an expert in that month's theme. The overall editorial content such as "Let's Play! The Science of Fun" and "Swimming with the Sharks" is tailored appropriately to this age group. Each issue includes an "Activity to Discover" such as a true or false quiz, "Do You Know the Truth About Sharks?" "Marshmallow Molecules," and "Design a Simple Maglev." Although our panelists found the graphic treatment a bit chaotic, the adept use of diagrams and illustrations balanced the concern.
