About the Course:

Chemistry exists all around us – especially in the movies! Since we can remember, pop culture has incorporated chemistry into its folklore. Using this science to contextualize it, comic books, movies, and even television shows have become intricately bonded to chemistry. Recently, many forms of entertainment have demonstrated chemistry such as the lessons on synthesizing soap from the movie “Fight Club”, explaining the creation of super beings in “Spiderman”, and even making sense of how the X-Men use their powers to save the world. But is the use of chemistry always correct in these applications? What can we learn from these presentations of science? How does chemistry help rationalize the world within entertainment and our own? These questions and many more will be answered as we explore Chemistry in the Comics.
