STEM Superheroes: The Sequel
Two years ago, University Beat introduced you to the Scientific League of Superheroes – a trio of USF graduate students who don colorful costumes and use comic book scenarios to teach science, technology, engineering and math to younger students. And like all superhero blockbusters, it’s time for a sequel!
The group has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for the next phase of their educational videos and accompanying materials. We have the story on University Beat on WUSF TV. Also: The Scientific League of Superheroes is back - and they need some help!
The trio of USF graduate students who use hands-on lessons and a slickly produced comic book-style video series to teach STEM skills to young people has launched a fundraising campaign. Find out more about their work on this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
