Flipside – the end of an era

This is a sad update to post so I will keep it short. The Trustees of the IET have with regret decided to close Flipside magazine after nearly ten years of publication.

Over the years Flipside entertained and inspired millions of teenagers and I hope they enjoyed reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together. As well as showing them what fun you could have as a scientist or engineer, Flipside was the first proper magazine after comics for many young teenagers and may even have got them into the reading habit.

The last issue will be the next one out in early July. I’d like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in making it such a great magazine.
