From the depths of the ocean to the vastness of outer space, from the mysteries of physics to the marvels of the human body, cartoons can help kids visualize even the most complicated concepts and make learning about science (even more) fun! In this interactive session, cartoonists Alex Graudins (Science Comics: The Brain), Maris Wicks (Science Comics: Coral Reefs), and Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline (One Day a Dot: The Story of You, the Universe, and Everything) will lead young science artists through two fun and silly drawing exercises. And at the end of the hour? The group will have made a comic!
Ages 9-13
