The Science Cartoons Program

The Science Cartoons (SciToons) program was developed to engage STEM and non-STEM students and faculty in the creation of science animation. The SciToons 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 SciToon videos are very compelling and engaging to a broad range of audiences. Dr. Oludurotimi Adetunji, Associate Dean of the College leads the initiative.
