Graphic Novels Present A New Perspective on Scientific Concepts
Illya Kowalchuk, Pop Culture Classroom
Recent studies indicate a precipitous drop in scientific literacy among a majority of Americans. Today's graphic novels (aka long-form comic books) present an interesting opportunity for facilitating a easier entry point for readers. The multi-modal format (text in conjunction with images) allows creators to, among other things, break down complicated scientific concepts for a wide variety of learning styles. During this Café Botanique, Illya Kowalchuk, M.Ed (Director of Education for Pop Culture Classroom) will discuss how graphic novels easily and enjoyably explain topics such as fantastically powered beetles, DNA, even nuclear fission.
Illya Kowalchuk is the co-founder of Pop Culture Classroom and DenverComic Con. Currently, Illya designs and oversees educational programming in schools, events, and correctional institutions.
