This semester, the Communicating Data through Stories class took on a creative assignment that combined science and comics to tell the story of each student’s research project. The students were challenged to translate the complexities of their work into a public-facing comics-style format with the assistance of a digital art program, and these completed projects were printed and are now displayed in the Hanson Center for Communication (HCC).

Click through the gallery below to see the students' comics; author names are in the captions.
