Engaging Children through the Use of Cartoons and Comics
Weitkamp, Emma; Featherstone, Helen
Primary Science, n113 p33-35 May-Jun 2010
ScienceComics project originally involved a set of theatre performances that sought to highlight the importance of materials by exploring what happens when one uses the "wrong" material. As part of this early work, two plays were created that featured a young alien girl, called Selenia, who could change materials. In this article, the authors explain how children informed the development of the "ScienceComics" project and the lead character, Selenia. Throughout the development of this project the most important factor has been engaging teachers and children in its development. (Contains 3 figures.)
