Articles Translated in Spanish!

Over 20% of school-aged children speak a language other than English at home; yet few STEM resources incorporate ELLs’ home language. Science Journal for Kids is working to bridge the language gap. Our team of translators collaborates directly with the authors to produce accurate texts, vocabulary words, comprehension questions, graphs, and images in 17 languages.
