ISWI Newsletter - Vol.5 No.37
25 March 2013

Dear ISWI Participant:

I attach a very fine pamphlet put out by SCOSTEP; I picked up my copy during the February 2013 meeting of STSC of COPUOS in Vienna.

I bring your attention to the "Outreach" section of this pamphlet. In this section there is a description of the scientific "Comic Book" series which was originally created in Japanese but has been expanded by SCOSTEP to cover many languages around the world. (For one event in India last year, ten thousand copies were printed in the Tamil language -- very impressive!)

Webmaster Note: More about "SCOSTEP Comic" Books, See ISWI newsletter Vol.4, No95

These comic books are available in several Western languages and can be downloaded as pdf. Do a Google search on "scostep comic book series" and the necessary web link will come into view. This is great teaching material for primary schools and secondary schools.

Webmaster Note: For quick access to SCOSTEP Comic books (in English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Russian or Spanish), just click here.

If you cannot find the comic books that you want in your language, why not volunteer to do the translation? Note: For accessing the text-free balloon version (for translation purposes), please click here.
