Free Your Mind: A Hip Hop Education STEMposium brings Hip Hop as critical pedagogy (HHCP) and STEM together in an exploration of innovative educational practices that seek to enhance the engagement and achievement of all students. This dialogue between HHCP and STEM also seeks to critique traditional educational methodologies that fail to connect to students and prepare them to engage with the world around them in critical and meaningful ways.
Free Your Mind aims to mobilize the power, popularity and potential of hip hop culture, as well as the effectiveness of student inquiry, problem based learning and technology as a platform for transformative education and re- education. We invite students, educators, parents and communities to join us as we explore the many possibilities for innovative and inclusive education that induces the natural genius of young people.
