Infographics in Science Education

When teaching a complex scientific concept, process, or mechanism, consider using an infographic.

An infographic is an image containing visual representations of statistics, data, maps, or other information. Infographics are often easier to understand than reading long paragraphs of text.

Infographics can be used to teach anything from the Kreb’s cycle, to the components of the solar system, to the process of metabolism.

Check out some of these science-related educational infographics below, search for them on visual.ly, or create your own.

    I’ve been researching the topic of infographics and your article really inspired me on writing a complete guide on what is an infographic: https://icons8.com/articles/what-is-an-infographic/

    It discusses different types of infographics with actual examples, as well as providing tips on visual elements and sharing a list of services for creating infographics.

    I hope it will add value to your article!
