Encourage water conservation by comic

In the absence of information about Mexican society about the alarming condition of aquifers in the country, Mexican researchers created the comic world H2O, an alternative scientific dissemination as a mass media.

The comic captures the attention, invoke emotional responses, promotes imagination and thereby promotes scientific knowledge is understood more easily, said Victor H. Cedeño Martinez, professor at the Technological Institute of Monterrey, and Luis Ernesto Marín Stillman, researcher the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

In his article water softeners reviews through Comic, published in the latest issue of the journal Science, disseminator of the Mexican Academy of Sciences, Martínez Cedeño and Marin Stillman got to know that the cartoon World H2O, which has a overview of the water situation also helps overcome the common problems in traditional teaching, in which students learn only focuses on data that will soon be forgotten.

The mixture of text and drawings of comic favors popular science, as they provide anchors that make memorable information with a model more familiar to the public representation, because in Mexico cartoon enjoys a wide social acceptance.

The material for scripts World H2O, which is supported by article Water in Mexico: challenges and opportunities, Luis E. Marin reports on the three problems of groundwater in our country: the overexploitation of aquifers, the and contamination of the saline intrusion, ie, when salt water (from the sea) flows into the continental subsoil mixed with freshwater reserves.

In their article, the researchers explained that the story has three main components: an introduction that addresses water war; a virtual journey from the future of Mexico where the characters, after a series of problems, learn about the importance of water and finally an epilogue in the future to strengthen transmitted ideas.

In an interview, Luis Marin Stillman, former coordinator of the Network of Water and member of the AMC, announced that H2O World is a doctoral project Victor H. Martinez, who attends graduate school in Humanistic Studies with a concentration in science and culture in the Technological Institute of Superior Studies Monterrey, where he is also professor.

Cartoon essentially aimed at 14- to 20-year-old was distributed among students of the UNAM and ITESM, and achieved excellent acceptance, Marin said Stillman.

Another project in which both researchers work in collaboration with the World Water

Assessment Program of the United Nations which aims to bring science to the general population and make available data vital fluid situation in the country.

Luis Marin said that due to the enormous concern at global and national level, water problems in the Federal District, as well as the great ignorance of most of society in relation to water, such projects are needed.

Follows a major effort to make people understand that water is a resource that if you do not care is scarce, pointed, besides constituting an attempt to socialize science.
