What’s Supernova all about?

Supernova is a general interest magazine which covers topics from science, technology, environmental issues, world cultures, sports, the arts, and social issues. Read up on local history and culture while doing all the activities and brain games and much more.

Why should I read Supernova?

Supernova is carefully designed to help you read, absorb and enjoy a wide range of topics. Things that you know about and things that you’ve never heard of. Our aim is to turn you into a responsible, informed, and motivated citizen of the Earth. And you’ll know a whole lot of cool facts that you can share with your friends and family.

So, how do I get my copy of Supernova?

Supernova magazine is subscription based. That means we send it to you in the post every 2 months. You can subscribe online by going here, and you can find us at any cool events throughout the year, like Hobby-X and the Homeschoolers Expos.

More than just an activity book: Dear parents and teachers

Supernova is carefully designed to be attractive to kids and to be an invaluable resource for parents and teachers. The content of the magazine can be used to expand a child’s knowledge base subjects taught in school as well as in unknown subjects. We publish at least one CAPS aligned topic in each magazine. This content can be used in conjunction with the free printable activities that are available on our website to enhance a child’s learning experience and cement what they learn.  

Supernova is a unique publication that can be used very successfully in the English language classroom and in subjects like Natural sciences, Social sciences and Technology.  Our intent is to provide the parent and teacher with a unique and fun resource that can be used in multiple learning activities.

Our dream at Supernova headquarters is to see the literacy rate improve as more kids realise that reading is fun. While the magazine is largely educational, learning is not our only goal. We also want to ensure that the child has fun while reading and learning.

What’s available at Supernova online

We’re constantly finding new ways of making Supernova more fun, informative and exciting, keeping your curious mind occupied and entertained. We’ve created a website where kids can find informative facts and diagrams to help with school work and homework assignments, as well as read more about all sorts of awesome topics and things to do. The website is created to cater to your needs. You can filter what you want to read and whenever you see the website sign in the magazine, there’s something cool online to read, watch or do.
