Learning Science through Dance in Philadelphia

In 2014, while I was still a full time teacher in San Jose, California, I visited Steve Believe Younger and Mark Wong (Metal), during my February break to learn about the work they are doing with Hip-Hop and education. Steve and Mark the Executive Directors of Hip-Hop Fundamentals, an organization that uses Break Dancing as a tool to teach science and Social studies. Not only were they gracious hosts, but they took me to various schools around Philadelphia to witness how these visionary schools fund mural projects, beat making, video editing, and dance classes all through school district funds. Steve Believe and Metal embody the idea of brotherly love.
