Event Description

This session includes a lecture, tour of the Bradbury Science Museum, and an interactive workshop. The whole program is only $50 ($40 for Bradbury Science Museum Association members).

Science meets comics meets workshop

Sure, you could take a science class or one of several online classes on comic books but why not combine them both at the Bradbury Science Museum?

Join us as we explore the history and use of science in comics in this fast-paced, hands-on lecture, tour, and workshop!  We'll look at how the visual language of comic books has tackled everything from explanations of how Superman flies to the development of the Manhattan Project.  Then, workshop participants will explore the Bradbury in an exclusive tour led by Museum Director Linda Deck, and learn techniques of the comics medium and create science-based comics of their own.

Jeff Benham, a member of 7000 B.C., a non-profit organization that promotes the writers and artists of comics, will lead the lecture and workshop.

Profits from this event will benefit the educational outreach of the BSMA.
