There’s been a lot of talk around the office lately about rapping. We love this recent piece from the PBS Newshour, highlighting how teachers in New York are partnering with hip-hop legend GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan and using rap to teach complex science.

Our Executive Director, Joey Feinstein, has been known to spontaneously combust a rhyme. To combat the effects of climate change, we’re going to have to use all the cross disciplinary tools we have have access to!

Watch Joey freestyle with suggestions from Locke Elementary School’s 6th grade students in “Rocke the Locke Clean Energy Movement!” Join us on May 18th at the 5th Annual Ride to Recharge and Climate Steps to be part of the movement!
