David, Software Engineer STEM Career Comic Book

DavidSoftwareEngineerLast year I wrote a second version of a comic book for a STEM Career Series. Paris Gamble had given me the first script which included the story and the already developed characters, plus feedback from middle grade and high school kids on how to improve the story. The feedback suggested changes that would make the story more interesting and entertaining as well educational and something girls would enjoy reading too.

Writing comic books and novels is definitely a passion of mine especially when the comic books are used both creatively and educationally. This project was a joy to work on from the beginning to the end. The characters were already well developed and the storyline was too. My challenge was to incorporate the educational information in a way that engaged kids, so that while they were enjoying the story and connecting with these two main characters from middle school through to college they were also learning about the potential of becoming a software engineer.

This is the first in a series of STEM Career Comic Books by Paris Gamble. You can find out more at his Kickstarter Campaign site, where you will also be able to see a few of the comic book pages. Donations are reasonable, starting as low as $5.00, and home-schoolers and schools can also receive student and parent guides.

It’s a highly creative and engaging way to open up communication about STEM Career possibilities with your child.

  1. I think this is a great and fun way to get the teens interested because it’s about tapping into their curiosity. I think something like this can be also introduced to younger kids. My kids who are 5 and 7 already know they want to study Mechanical Engineering in College due to knowledge and exposure from their dad. So the younger we guide them the better.
