The Science of the Superhero!

Science of superhereoOn Thursday, October 16, Five Oaks Academy was proud to welcome Jerry DeCaire to Five Oaks as a guest artist for the Upper Elementary and Middle School students. Jerry has served as an artist for Wolverine, Thor, X-Men, Conan and many other famous comic book and film characters. His presentation showed how mathematics, science and art can merge to create superheros! Jerry had all of the students on the edge of their seats with excitement as they watched him create a superhero while explaining the math and geometry he was using to create his art. They were thrilled to be given copies of the drawings he made that day. It was a great opportunity for them to see how the subjects they areĀ  learning in the classroom are applied in the “real world”.
