Mission statement

We seek to connect curious minds to the experts and information that will motivate them to ask informed and critical questions about real science throughout their lives. By working directly with scientists, we ensure that our content is of the highest quality. By working directly with kids, we help foster curiosity both in and out of the classroom and engage the next generation of citizens and scientists.

Do You Love Science? Want to know about the latest discoveries? Do you wish scientists would write articles that you could understand? Do you want to learn beyond your textbook with science you can trust?

Frontiers for Young Minds has articles that are written by scientific experts, but they are always reviewed by young people to make sure that they are clear and easy to understand.

Get involved

Every Frontiers for Young Minds article has to pass the judgement of our Young Reviewers before it can go online.

These reviewers are between the ages of 8-15 and work with a Science Mentor to provide feedback to authors that will make articles as clear and interesting as possible before being published and made available online.

If you would like to be one of our Young Reviewers you or your class will need to work with a Science Mentor - someone with experience in scientific research and the peer review process.

Contact us at kids@frontiersin.org and we can provide you with more information about how to find a Science Mentor.
