Rapping about CERN and… Bike Racks?
Two really nerdy instructional rap songs hit the Internets. Is this the future of education?
Last week, the New Scientist released a hilarious (and much blogged-about) rap music video wherein engineers at CERN explained how the Large Hadron Collider works. You may have already seen it, but seriously, watch it again—it’s amazing. Today, our friends (okay, my husband) at Outside Magazine alerted us to the existence of another super-geeky instructional rap song. It’s about how to use a bike rack. We didn’t know this needed explaining, but it sure is fun to watch.
Maybe these guys are on to something: if you want to teach American kids, it’s probably best to do it in rhyme. Anyone out there feel like sending us a rap video about some other tech-related topic? Weird Al’s “White and Nerdy” doesn’t count…
Here’s the CERN video, for your inspiration:
