Science COMICS belongED in Schools 1927 – 1950. Episode #5

Sadly since 1950, comics have been considered as junk culture that has no place in schools. But what about the two golden decades between 1927-1950? During this period there were many non –fiction true science comics used like any ordinary text book in schools. In parallel with our Innovative VirologyComics, I will be posting these antique TRUE COMICS. I hope you find them enjoyable and informative! Moreover, convincing that the medium, comics, can serve AGAIN as A POWERFUL TOOL to RE-CONNECT the community with SCIENCE and improve SCIENCE LITERACY!

Innovation in Science Literacy Award (ISLA) 2017: winner announced as ‘Cimaza Virology Comics’

The inaugural award winner of ISLA is ‘Cimaza Virology Comics’.  Using the power of illustrations, comics and animated videos Cimaza facilitates the acquisition and transmission of scientifically accurate information on viruses and vaccines, thus improving health and science literacy.

The graphic material of Cimaza is provided in the major European languages and in Arabic and covers a number of different topics, including bacterial and viral infections, antibiotics and vaccine safety. The challenge is to deliver scientific knowledge using an engaging and attractive means directed to a wide range of learners (children, parents, immigrants, refugees and low literacy communities, general public), empowering them to make the right decisions and take appropriate actions on their health and quality of life both in normal situations and during emerging crises.

For more information see the Cimaza profile.

ISLA is funded and administered by the Hardie Wren Development Initiatives (HWDI) and facilitated in collaboration with NIDA.
