Comic books bring local STEM heroes to life


The Curriculum and Assessment Development team at CCEA has recently produced a comic book series for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. The comics teach students about the extraordinary achievements of some of Northern Ireland’s unsung heroes in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The comic series, entitled ‘Norn Iron’s Ordinary Heroes!’, brings alive the stories of people like Sir James Martin who was born in Crossgar in 1893 and went on to invent the ejector seat.
