Since its inception more than a decade ago, Project Dragonfly at Miami University has reached millions of children, parents, and educators worldwide through its many projects promoting voice, conservation, and global understanding.

The project began in 1994 with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the launch of Dragonfly magazine. Created by a group of professors at Miami’s School of Interdisciplinary Studies and published by the National Science Teachers Association, Dragonfly was the first national publication that placed kids' first-person scientific investigations alongside the discoveries of adult researchers, such as world-renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall.

Project Dragonfly pioneered the “real kids, real science” approach to learning, and in all of its print, web, and broadcast media projects continues to work toward inquiry-driven reform to increase public engagement in science and global understanding.

Below, please find the archives of Dragonfly’s kid-friendly web pages – the scientific content of which is timeless. We hope you have fun taking a look!
