You Can With Beakman and Jax

You Can With Beakman and Jax is a syndicated comic strip by Jok Church. The strip was used as the basis for the children's television program "Beakman's World".cite news|url=http://www.cincypost.com/living/1998/beak030298.html|title=Beakman's World: Museum hosts hands-on show|author=Connie Yeager|first=Connie|last=Yeager|work=The Cincinnati Post|publisher=E.

The two characters are Beakman, a male figure with glasses and a pencil behind one ear, and Jax, a female figure with glasses and earrings in the shape of jacks (from the children's game). The current comic strip includes a wide variety of information especially in the field of science and technology and history. The strip's text is in a question-and-answer format, in which a reader asks a question, addressed to either Beakman or Jax, and Church provides the answer, usually by means of a simple experiment the children reading can do (often with parental assistance or supervision). A paragraph after the results of the experiment, titled "So What:", explains the answer.
