Science comes alive for children through comics and Augmented Reality

Children can now enjoy the best of both print and digital worlds with the World of Science Comics Series published by World Scientific Education, an imprint of World Scientific Publishing. The five-book science comics series presents Singapore’s Primary School Science syllabus through interesting comics and fun augmented reality (AR) to engage and excite readers.

“We realise that an increasing number of children lose interest in science once exams are introduced. With the World of Science, we want to keep children intrigued about the world through impressionable stories told through colourful comics and cool Augmented Reality components,” said Max Phua, Managing Director of World Scientific Publishing. The World of Science Comics Series’ first 5 books explore aquatic creatures, birds, insects, the human body, and plants and fungi. While enjoying the comics, children are also able to manipulate 3D models of selected topics, watch related informative videos, hear actual sounds and participate in quizzes.

“Through Augmented Reality, we hope to provide children an interactive and immersive experience of the book they are reading. With the different functions, they are able to visualise the content that they are reading about instantly. This helps create a lasting impression and memory of the topic, and sparks their interest in science,” said Gerald Cai, Managing Director of SnapLearn.

The World of Science Comics series will continue to inspire kids to learn more about science through the launch of 6 new books in late 2021. These books will explore the topics of land animals, technology and gadgets, the green movement, ‘How Things Work’, natural wonders and great minds.

The World of Science Comics Series set of 5 books (aquatic creatures, birds, insects, the human body and plants and fungi) is now available at all major bookstores at $59.90 (softcover), $99.90 (hardcover). Individual books are also available for sale at $14.90 (softcover) and $24.90 (hardcover).
