The first issue of our SWENext comic book is about civil engineering. It's about weather affecting traffic patterns and how engineers design solutions. It was released in the fall of 2016. We met Constance, a girl interested in learning about the world around her, and Nano, a female superhero who uses her brain and special powers to help Constance when flooding makes it hard to get to school.
