We believe in the wonders of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), education and knowledge, and their power to grow young minds.
Hence, our mission is to connect young minds everywhere to the wonders of STEM, education and knowledge, and to spark enjoyment and understanding.
OUR SECRET SAUCE
We achieve this mission by combining the effectiveness of the story-based approach with Singapore’s internationally renowned high standards in Science, Mathematics and English, in order to produce engaging children’s stories, suitable for all!
The other key to achieving our mission is our authors and illustrators. We strive to work closely with our content creators, as they are very important to us!
OUR PUBLISHING FOCUS
We focus on two age groups: 3-8 years old and 6-12 years old.
And, we focus on two themes:
The STEM theme. We focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) resources for children. Many of our products are written by scientists, academics and field experts who have collaborated with us to make STEM accessible and engaging for children.
The Asian theme. We focus on stories from Asia. Our resources fill the gap of Asian-themed children’s resources in the English-speaking market.
We also have a growing list of books with other educational themes, e.g., books on mental wellness, financial literacy, and learning other skills.
We are the Children’s and Education Division of World Scientific Publishing Co. Our division began in the throes of the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2020, with the urgent mission to provide engaging and educational resources for children who might be stuck at home.
Our parent company, World Scientific Publishing Co., is a global publishing house founded in 1981 by Professor K K Phua and Ms Doreen Liu with the support of two Nobel Laureates. It has published works across the full range of subjects, including physics and astronomy, chemistry, physiology and medicine, economic sciences and literature, enabling scientific, literary and humanitarian works to reach a wider audience.
