On October 12th, the Cultural Events Board is delighted to be bringing a founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, GZA. Not only is GZA an incredibly talented hip hop artist, he is also a co-founder of the Science Genius program, where he educates students about science through hip-hop, a potent cultural force. His enthusiasm for science heavily influences his music. He educates listeners about fundamental scientific principles in a new and exciting way, helping audiences understand how we are all connected to the natural world and the universe around us. On stage, he recites narrative “freestyles”- often off the top of his head- that truly tell the story of the powerful relationship between science and hip hop.
The event will be taking place October 12th, in the Glenn Miller Ballroom, and it is free to all. The event will start at 7, and the doors will open at 6:30. There will be a moderated Q+A session, so if you have questions please post them here!
