Informal Science Education

The Science Cartoons (Sci-Toons) initiative was developed to engage STEM and non-STEM students and faculty in the creation of science animation. The Sci-Toons model is a new approach for communicating scientific research and concepts to broad audience via storytelling, animation, high-quality multimedia and art to conceptualize and communicate science. The final Sci-Toon videos are very compelling and engaging to a broad range of audiences. Dr. Oludurotimi Adetunji, Associate Dean of the College leads the initiative.
