Shout Science!

Shout Science! is a comic storybook app for young readers about scientists and scientific discovery. I did most of the writing, illustration, sound and code myself. In its first year, Shout Science! was featured in the App Store, nominated for a Cybils Award, and was mentioned in a variety of media outlets, including The Guardian and Zeit Wissen. It has been downloaded over 160,000 times.

The app consists of three comic biographies from the Scientific Revolution: Anoton van Leeuwenhoek, Maria Sybilla Merian, and James Hutton. Each of whom made a significant contribution to early scientific discovery and thought. They are structured as long scroll comic books with interactive elements that add to the story without distracting from the reading. Take a look at a few of these excerpts.

"Uplift" James Hutton
"Animalcules" Anton van Leeuwenhoek
"Metamorphosis" Maria Sibylla Merian
