Combining the learning benefits of visualization with the power of storytelling, high-quality graphic novels make STEM subjects more accessible and engaging for all students, particularly students who may not see themselves as scientists or engineers. Panelists will discuss how the comics medium is perfectly suited to breaking down complex information, improving recall and transfer of learning, and making STEM engaging and fun. Featuring creators Mairghread Scott (Science Comics: Robots and Drones, City on the Other Side) and Yehudi Mercado (Sci-Fu, Fun Fun Fun World), educators Derek Heid (9th and 11th grade English Language Arts, TVUSD), Isabel Morales (11th-12th grade Social Studies teacher, LAUSD), and Betsy Gomez (educational content developer), and moderator Tracy Edmunds (Graphic Novels Are Elementary).
