Out of taking the Landmark Forum, science teacher Otto Fong realized his dreams of becoming an animator, combining his passion for science with his passion for animation to provide kids with an entertaining and easy way to learn scientific principles.
Fong previously released his animated ‘Adventures in Science Book in 2008 – now Fong has brought his second ‘Adventures in Science Book’ to SmartKids ’10, Malaysia’s largest children’s education fair, which took place this past April 9-11. Fong was also a featured speaker in May at the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference. The book is both an animated comic adventure and an educational teaching tool about science.
Fong, who began his career as an engineer and then a science teacher, had long had both a love of science and animation.
