Drawn Futures: Arizona 2045 is a science-based comic book for 5th through 8th grade students from ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination. Created by award-winning comics authors and advised by ASU senior sustainability scholar Dr. Paul Hirt, this original story envisions the near future of Arizona’s energy systems.
In an increasingly networked and visual culture, comic books and graphic novels are important tools for bolstering literacy, communicating with diverse audiences, and creating a space to discuss complex scientific and social topics in a meaningful and accessible way. Drawn Futures: Arizona 2045 is designed with these goals in mind and aligns with Arizona State Standards for the 6th Grade science curriculum.
Drawn Futures: Arizona 2045 is available now, and a limited number of classroom sets will be distributed to interested educators.
