Children's physics comic

Hello! My name is Minnie Jia, and my Polygence project is an educational picture book for children explaining some of the most fundamental concepts in classical physics. I hope to help kids gain an exposure to physics at a young age and discover how physics is not at all abstract. I published my physics picture book on Amazon so that people of all ages will be able to access it!

Project description

Physics education is extremely important to children; almost every single person feels curious about nature when they are a child. However, physics is considered to be hard and convoluted to many students when they start learning it. I would like to spark the interest in physics among children by drawing a physics picture book and connecting physics to children’s day-to-day lives, helping them gain an exposure to physics and correct general misconceptions towards physics concepts. The picture book consists of three main topics: kinematics, energy, and forces, and includes many drawings in a cartoonish style to be kid-friendly.
