Battle Rap Histories of Epic Science

Posted on April 12, 2013 by


I had a lot of amazing professors when I was a Stanford Human Biology major, but one of the most memorable educators I had was a TA named Tom McFadden. Tom made science covers of rap songs we all loved. After teaching my classmates and I, Tom got a Fulbright Scholarship and headed down to New Zealand to experiment some more with using rap to teach science.

Tom is now trying to roll out his project across the Bay Area through a Kickstarter campaign. There’s only 4 days left in the campaign, but he’s almost there. Any donation you can make counts!

Just think about yourself as a middle schooler… don’t you think you would’ve been a bigger fan of Darwin if he had spit evolutionary theory over a Dr. Dre beat?
