Using comics to teach STEM

Using comics to teach STEM

With the advent of the 21st century sharing society, we are rapidly evolving into a hypervisual culture. Between all the major social media platforms, we are now sharing over 500 million pictures a day and that is expected to double every year. Last year, Facebook commanded the majority of these interactions, but kids today have already rendered Facebook obsolete. Using this information to our advantage, Comics transform we see and teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) addressing the needs of diverse learners. With the new emphasis on reading nonfiction text, academic vocabulary, comics are more relevant than ever. Join Educators and Comics Creators as we present strategies for teaching STEM topics.

One of the most basic traits of a hero, is to fight for humanity and impact the world around them. If the majority of our heroes are all from the same race, heritage, or ethnicity, it not only sends the message that only one group is capable of heroism, but it also leaves no room for other races to fight for humanity as well. Exploring the ideas behind diversity and talking about how we can help spread those changes, without excluding any race, is vital to the comic book discussion.
