Science Raps

Science Raps

There’s different types of rap music but here’s where you can find raps and other music videos about science.

Science raps are raps that have some aspect of science as their main focus. The rap aspect presents the information in a non formal way; in a way recognisable by many young and older people throughout the world. This makes science raps a unique way of getting scientific information across; particularly to audiences that might not engage with it formally.

Here is a science rap about the periodic table.
