Teaching Electronics with Comics

"Teachers can introduce popular culture into their classrooms easily and effectively through comics. Comic books have been a vital part of American popular culture for the last century". (Gene Luen Yang, National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature)

The “Wonderful World of Electronics” is an ongoing educational project to introduce kids and teenagers to the art of electronics using a novel friendly format; DIY electronics tools and fun exercises complemented with educational comics in which old-timer nutty professor Scatterbrain and his associate Multi, a Multimeter low in batteries and brainpower, explore with the reader the many aspects of basic electronics and explains step-by-step how to assemble the circuits and fun exercises they propose to the reader.
“I have more than a decade of experience teaching electronics to kids and adults of all ages, at Grad and Undergrad levels as well as in workshops and after school programs, and one of the main purposes of my educational program is for the student to overcome the fear of working with electronics (...) I see a future in which kids and youths use electronic components to build the product of their imagination the same way they use plastic bricks to assemble Legos nowadays. And I hope this project can help make that happen” Federico Muelas (Professor Scatterbrain’s alter-ego and creator of the Wonderful World of Electronics)
