Join students Sophie, Tomás, Emma, and Marcus during Fifth Period! This STEM comic strip chronicles the exciting and often hilarious adventures of a close-knit group of four friends as they learn about science, technology, engineering, and math from their kooky, inspiring, off-the-wall science teacher, Mr. Kepler. When they're not in class, these kids love to explore the vast world of STEM on their own, launching weather balloons, programming computer games, and cataloging insects, sometimes with unpredictable and highly entertaining results!
Check back on the first and third Friday of every month for a new Fifth Period strip!
Sophie, Tomás, Emma, and Marcus have had their fair share of adventure this year—now it's time for them to go on summer break. The gang definitely won't be sitting around while they're on vacation, though, so come back this September to see what they’ve been up to. There are plenty of new adventures to come!
Very special thanks go out to the APL STEM Office, Anne S., Don, Kal, Anne K., Frank, Jeff, Jon, and many others for all of their help making this webcomic possible.
