Comics can be a powerful tool for teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), but they require collaboration between comic creators, scientists, and educators. The panel featuring Jorge Cham (PhD Comics), Dwayne Godwin (neuroscientist and professor, Wake Forest School of Medicine), Rebecca Thompsen (author , Spectra: The Original Laser Superhero), and Alan Gershenfeld (president, E-Line Media) discuss process and lessons learned from "serious games" to create a vibrant community of interest. Moderated by Russell Shilling (U.S. Dept of Education, former DARPA pm).
