Ada's Adventures in Science
Born from a scientist and artist partnership, the aim of this three-part comic book is to get kids excited about science and empower them to do science. I collaborated with Edward Gomez, an astronomer and education director at Las Cumbres Observatory, to create the comic as an educational tool that can be easily used in class rooms.
I came up with a character called Ada who grows up during the three stories and weaves together different topics such as inclusion, robotic telescopes and working together to make discoveries. I designed the artwork black and white to enable easy photocopying and printing at schools as we wanted the work to be free and accessible. We also ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to print and send the comics around the world: we have sent 15,000 copies in English, Welsh, Spanish and German to schools in USA, UK, Colombia, Australia, Netherlands, South Africa, Zambia and Nigeria.
