Rocking the (tree) house - Rap Music Brings Science to Urban Youth; Olympia, WA

Rap Music Brings Science to Urban Youth « The EQ -:
George “Duke” Brady, a rapper from California, took my forest ecology class at Evergreen State College some years ago. During our class field trips to the Olympic Peninsula, I introduced him to the ecology of temperate rain forests.
One day, during a spontaneous moment on a field trip, Duke inadvertently introduced a new way for me — a middle-aged, middle-income, female scientist — to reach inner-city youths and interest them in trees, nature and science.
