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.
