Newcastle Science Comic Blog

A comic funded by Newcastle University to support the British Science Festival in September 2013, engaging 8 - 13 year olds in the North East with science and research.

My main role in this project was management of our online presence. The Newcastle Science Comic blog is hosted on the Blogger platform, this was chosen as it was faimilar to our contributors, simple to update and flexible enough for our needs.

Editorial duties include supporting six artist, writer and scientist teams while producing the comic.

Online Editorial duties include maintaining @nclsciencecomic on Twitter and the blog, updating with contributor profiles and submitted comics.

I also worked with a scientist to create my own comic. Working with James Field I illustrated an activity for our target audience demonstrating the usefulness of mouthwash.
