How can we use science fiction, zombies and comic books to help convey advanced science concepts to a non-science audience? It's easier than you might think. Zombies can be used to teach about virus outbreaks and infectious diseases. Superheroes can be used to teach about the forces of physics: how fast was Superman going? Asimov's works can be used to discuss what it means to be human...and how we might create artificial life. Star Trek can be used to discuss the limits of the physical universe and the speed of light. .
