Mensa UK has launched a new bi-monthly member magazine, IQ, aimed at readers with a thirst for knowledge and an inquisitive mind.
In an exclusive interview for IQ, physicist and television presenter Professor Brian Cox shared his views on the Apollo “aviators” and how their accomplishments inspire hope.
Robin Ince described his favourite bookshops, while another fascinating feature pitted the storywriting skills of a professional writer against artificial intelligence.
In this first issue, Mensa members were also asked to choose who most embodies intelligence. The members’ top 10 list of intelligentsia was accompanied by IQ’s own contemporary selection of brilliant minds that make our world a more interesting place.
The magazine featured the remarkable story of former Royal Navy navigator Louise Worrall, who shared her journey and the lessons she learned along the way; an inspiring story that is a testament to the power of resilience and determination.
IQ readers will also enjoy a regular mix of puzzles and mind-bending challenges.
Chief Executive of British Mensa Cath Hill said: “I am delighted with our new magazine and hope our members will be equally as pleased. There is a wonderful variety of features, which makes for a fascinating read, and we’ve also been very fortunate with the profile of our interviewees. I look forward to our continued partnership with the team at Think Publishing, with whom we’ve worked very closely on the production of the magazine, and can’t wait to see what’s planned for the next issue.”
Available exclusively for Mensa members, IQ is a must-read for anyone who loves to learn and explore the world around them.
The new magazine was developed by the team at Think Publishing. “Working on the new Mensa members magazine has been a joy,” said Executive Director John Innes, “There are so many interesting stories to tell that our challenge hasn’t been what to include, but what to leave out. We’re looking forward to telling some exciting stories in the months ahead.”
