DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-2517-3.ch004
The 21st century offers many technological advancements resulting from cutting-edge research being conducted by scientists and engineers at higher education institutions, industries, and national labs. As exciting scientific research is being conducted, the need to address the challenges of inspiring and engaging new learners in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields continues to grow. The authors present the Science Cartoons (SciToons) program as a model for making science more accessible through the integration of the arts with STEM (STEAM). The SciToons model is based on a Multimedia Learning Theoretical Framework (MLTF), which facilitates co-creation of knowledge and takes into account the contributions of STEM and non-STEM experts. The SciToons model combines this knowledge and expertise with art, animation, high-quality multimedia, and storytelling in the development of science videos that are engaging to a broad audience.
