As a nonprofit organization dedicated to science, exploration, education and storytelling, we are always evolving to best meet the needs of young learners and the educators who reach them. In our commitment to support you, we are now offering free digital access to Explorer magazine to provide this interactive resource to even more educators and students.

Explorer magazine includes engaging topics, stories, photographs and more so you can continue to teach, connect, and inspire your learners anytime, anywhere.

The digital magazine is easy to access on all devices (including mobile) so you can explore:

  • Read-aloud non-fiction text, pop-up vocabulary, videos, maps, and games
  • Upcoming digital issues as well as the magazine’s digital archive spanning four years
  • 2020-2021 digital issues will be available in English and Spanish (new!)
  • Plus, teacher’s guides in every issue, including Spanish Blackline Masters

Access explorer magazine today – it’s never been easier!

Starting June 2020, we are transitioning to an all-digital format. The May 2020 issue will be the final print issue.

We hope you’ll stay connected with us across all of our @NatGeoEducation platforms as well as at to see the latest educational opportunities and resources from National Geographic.
