SuperScientists is drawing living ~40 scientists in Africa as the superheroes they are and making trading cards and other materials that teach about science and the people behind it. We want learners to see scientists’ superpowers – catch a single virus and read its genome! – and that they are real people that look like them. When we ask learners to name a scientist it’s Einstein or no one. SuperScientists speaks a language kids understand, promotes Black and women scientists and is fun.
