Dragons Stalk Junior Skeptic
The new “dragons” issue of Junior Skeptic is on newsstands now!
Bound into Skeptic Volume 14, Number 1, this issue delves into the lore of the ultimate monster.
Dragon mythology stretches back to our most ancient writings. Almost every culture around the globe has told tales of huge, fearsome reptile monsters. How could different cultures imagine the same kind of monster? Could the many myths of dragons be based on something real?
Find out in the newest Junior Skeptic!
To celebrate the new “Dragons” issue of Junior Skeptic, we’re introducing a real dragon — one you can make yourself!
This brand new origami figure was designed especially for Junior Skeptic by Australian skeptic, author, and origami artist Richard Saunders.
To conjure up a winged dragon of your own — or a flock of them! — all you need are a square piece of paper and an internet connection. Richard has kindly made a step-by-step instruction video showing exactly how to fold the figure, which you can watch online for free. Have fun!
