Science Genius: hip hop remixes science
Science Genius is a pilot program to teach science in schools using hip-hop and rap. Check out its progress so far in this video with ninth graders from Bronx Compass High School. Although it’s not the same program as the rap battles that Mindy has been posting on Fridays, it follows a growing trend to make science a little more accessible to everyone. (For more on Science Genius, check out the stories on NPR or PBS.)
What do you think of this approach? Would you like this in your schools? Do you have any good rap lyrics to share about science?
