As you probably know, Denver Comic Con is unique in supporting the education and literacy efforts of our partner nonprofit, Pop Culture Classroom. This year, fun and learning are on full display in the Pop Culture Classroom Kids’ Lab, where heroes of all ages are learning about art, reading, game development and design, and more.
This year, the Kids’ Laboratory features lots of special areas including:
An all ages craft area, where students learn about subjects like chemistry, math and aerodynamics with Galaxy Goo, DIY crafts and more.
The teen craft area, where older kids can explore advanced model building, stop-motion animation, and explore their enthusiasm for engineering, art and media.
Barry Allen’s Forensics Lab, where kids are donning their detective hats to figure out which supervillain stole the cakes from the Blue Bear Café!
The 8-Bit Lounge, where kids can learn about making their own video games, talk with real writers and artists from the comic book world, and learn how real-world creators are making some of the most popular shows on television.
You never know who’s going to show up in the Pop Culture Classroom Kids’ Lab. Just today, one of our superstar guests, Patrick Warburton, showed up to engage with kids! Patrick is well known to fans for his starring roles in Seinfeld and The Tick, and lots of kids and their parents recognized Patrick’s voice talents from his cartoon work on The Venture Bros., Bee Movie, Kim Possible, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and many more.
It was a pleasure to hear Patrick put his voice and acting talents to good use in the Kids’ Lab as he partnered with one of our volunteer hosts to read the classic “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss.
Be sure and make time to visit the Pop Culture Classroom Kids’ Lab this weekend for more great surprises!
