    Brains!: A Neuroscience Comic Book for Kids

Abstract

When I was growing up, comic books served as a medium for me to let my imagination grow, explore new worlds, and have fun while reading. The goal of Brains!: A Neuroscience Comic Book for Kids is to provide that same experience for elementary school students while teaching them a little bit about neurobiology along the way. I worked with Professor Michael Dailey, Professor Renita Schmidt, and Professor Kevin Ripka at the University of Iowa to create a short comic book that was accurate, accessible to elementary school students, and fun to read. I then did a reading with the Strong Girls Read Strong Books book club, and distributed the book online. In the future, I hope to use the feedback I received on the first comic book to create a new comic book and continue spreading fun, informative, and understandable science literature.
