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!
Summer, Here We Come!
The school year is finally over for the Fifth Period gang, and it looks like they have a lot planned for the summer. Don’t worry though—they’ll be back next September with more stories to tell. Now it’s time to go see what summer has in store for you!
Very special thanks go out to the APL STEM Office, Anne S., Don, Kal, Anne K., Frank, Jeff, Jon, Lynn, and many others for all of their help making this webcomic possible.
