Today is the last day of the 2008-2009 Scorpy series! We’ve had lots of fun exploring the election, multiplication and division, astronomy, geometry, the arts, conservation, geography and many more topics. But don’t worry, you can catch up on any series that you missed, as well as explore the past three years of adventures here on our website.

Yesterday, May 21st, 2009, Amazement Square hosted The Amazing Adventures of Scorpy Bug: Out of the Box, a workshop about Scorpy and using comics in the classroom. Bentley Boyd, illustrator of the Scorpy Series and award-winning cartoonist, came as a special guest speaker. We had a great time learning about all the different forms a comic could take and creating our own comics. Thank you everyone who attended!
